Scholars at Risk’s annual event, US Student Advocacy Days, brings together students and faculty from Student Advocacy Seminars across the United States for training on best practices in advocacy on behalf of imprisoned scholars. Students, faculty, and SAR staff gather in Washington, DC, on April 7-8, to meet with Members of Congress regarding scholars’ cases. Students will workshop next steps in advocacy with SAR staff, and learn from civil society partners also working on case advocacy. Students and faculty participating in Student Advocacy Seminars are invited to join. Please contact Clare Robinson at for more information.

To help prepare for meetings with Members of Congress, SAR offers a two-part virtual workshop [link to that event post] on March 22nd, 1-3pm EST, on presenting a case to government officials. Students and faculty across the network are invited to join this virtual training. Pre-registration is required.
