A.I.S. Newsletter - General Meeting / Welcome Back Social - Monday 24th September, 2007

Association of Indian Students


Hi Guys & Gals,


We had been trying hard to bring up a welcome party in general to all Indian Students on campus. Unfortunately due to several reasons, we weren't able to bring in a party for all the students. But we thought that it would be necessary for us to host a Welcome Social for the new students (primarily) so that they get to know what AIS is all about and what we look forward to do in this semester and the upcoming academic year. The current students are also welcome to attend this event.


Hence we are presenting to you "The AIS General Meeting / Welcome Back Social" on Monday 24th September 2007 at Tommy's Place (more details given below).


We have also getting our dates finalized for Garba and Diwali which are our main events this semester.


We hope to see you there at the Social.


Thank You.

Cry Walks For Child Rights

CRY Child Rights and You is an independent, non-religious, non-political, registered non-profit organization in India. It works towards restoring basic rights to children, especially from India and works across levels from direct action to advocacy, mobilizing public opinion and policy change. It focuses mainly on the 4 basic rights of survival, development, protection and participation which were defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), an international human rights treaty which has been ratified by 192 countries.

The CRC is built on certain "foundation principles" that underpin all other children's rights. The CRC confers the following basic rights on all children across the world, without discrimination:

  • The right to survival to life, health, nutrition, name and nationality
  • The right to development to education, care, leisure, recreation
  • The right to protection from exploitation, abuse, neglect
  • The right to participation to expression, information, thought and religion.

CRY works to ensure these rights to all categories of children, who could be street children, children bonded in labor, children of commercial sex workers, physically and mentally challenged children and children in juvenile institutions, or even children in privileged homes.


We have organized a walk near the Santa Monica Pier for October 6th. I will attach the links to both the walk sign up list and the pledge drive. This is the 3rd year the walk has been held but the first year I have been involved. I know it is short notice but I just got on board this past weekend and would really like a strong showing this year

I was hoping to get at least 150 people out there walking. I know everyone must be extremely busy but if you can forward this mail to your constituents/members, I'd really appreciate it. We may even do a post walk meet and greet. We hope to have a pretty diverse group from varied backgrounds. Undergrad to grad students and professionals from different walks of life. 

If you know of anyone else who would be able to help out, please invite them or ask them to contact me. 

Please give me a call or drop me a line anytime. 914 471 1441. 

Thanks for all your help.
