Peace Love Peruna
My husband and I are proud to support SMU because of our amazing experiences with the Embrey Human Rights Program. We participated in conferences, on-campus events, service-learning opportunities, earned a degree in Human Rights. We also gained enormous benefit through our involvement with the Human Rights Pilgrimages. We traveled to Poland (twice), Germany, France, and the Netherlands. We learned so much about our world and the need for change. Interacting with fellow travelers including Sherry Aikman and Dr. Halperin were perspective-altering, life-changing moments. Truly, the Embrey Human Rights Program influenced us and our family in so many ways. We ended up bringing both of our mothers along for two of the pilgrimages and hope to bring our children once they're older. It's important that SMU supports a program that teaches us about human dignity, respect, and advocacy. As long as SMU supports these tenants, we will be supporting SMU.
