A talk by the Egypt Country Co-Ordinator
Wednesday, 16 September 2020
Amnesty International country coordinator for Egypt, Debora Singer, gave a talk organised by Amnesty Ipswich 7.30 to 8.30pm on Wednesday, 16th September via Zoom. Thank you to Debora for an informative lecture!
"I have been an Amnesty member for 35 years. I was a very active member of the Islington and Hackney Group some years ago and am now an Amnesty trainer. I applied to become a country coordinator as I wanted to continue to use my twenty years’ experience of policy and campaigning when I retired a year ago. My professional career has included working on human rights in relation to victims of crime and women seeking asylum."
