Details: Join us for this inspiring two-day event with a Nobel Peace Laureate and hundreds of engaged students from across Belgium. In 1992, Ebadi acquired her lawyer's license and established her own practice. She prioritized cases that involved the unfair treatment of women and children. Ebadi became one of the most well-known lawyers in Iran and defended the families of serial murder victims and child abuse victims. Ebadi has lived in exile in the United Kingdom since June 2009 because of death threats from the Iranian government. She continues to work for human rights around the world. Ebadi has been a member of PeaceJam since 2004. Young people ages 14-18, as well as their teachers and adult advisers, have the opportunity to spend two days interacting with this amazing world leader for peace and participating in workshops around current issues, volunteer projects, and family groups led by university mentors!
