Mohamed Ibrahim Elgadi

For the past few years I was honored to coordinate the work of Amnesty International in Amherst and also served on the Human Rights Commission of Amherst Town. This continued to enable me to bring up the voice of the oppressed and help to organize grassroots campaigns on their behalf. Many good successful stories resulted from this work and at the same time some sad ones when we fail to rescue people on time (we recently lost to death three courageous human rights activists in the horrific prisons of Eritrea).  


I also continued to work at Service Net where many tools of Adult Education I learned at CIE come handy to help in this important job of counseling and training. I also joined Springfield College as an Adjunct Faculty member to teach mainly Advocacy and Policy Analysis.


I was recently nominated and honored with a 2013 'Prins Global Scholars' fellowship for Scholars at Risk, hosted by New York University. This would require me to spend the spring semester at NYU and teach Environmental Studies course and Human Rights Seminar. I'm very excited about this opportunity to share my research experience, and to bring up the voice of other oppressed researchers in Sudan. [11/12]
