As part of AISB’s Human Rights Week, students from a variety of service learning groups are working together to educate our community about issues around the world.

Today is dedicated to Freedom of Speech, and Amnesty International members Ioana D, David S, and Mara T. have put together a podcast to explore this topic during Romania’s communist era.

You’ll hear AISB local staff members Cristina Cuzuc and Codruta Pohrib, as well as Ioana’s grandfather, share anecdotes from the Romanian revolution, and explain what it was like transitioning from “one of the most repressive states” to a place where you could express yourself freely.

“Words can change worlds and can break down walls… if you have that power, you should use it.” -Cristina Cuzuc.
