Ahead of Fordham Law School assessment Tribunal aims to cover their costs with Manhattan fundraiser
The Irish Famine Tribunal has planned a fundraiser in South Street Seaport, Manhattan, ahead of the Fordham Law School assessment of the impact of the Irish Famine.
Those invited to attend are Irish Americans, Irish Diaspora, Legal, and human rights advocates.
To this day, the Irish Famine (also known as the Great Hunger) remains one of the most lethal famines in modern history in terms of deaths and dislocation of population.
On 20th October 2012, a Famine Tribunal will be held at Fordham Law School, New York City. The object of the Tribunal is to assess the impact of the Irish Famine on the Irish population, and to examine its political, economic, cultural, and physiological legacies, all within a legal framework.
A second day of activities will be devoted to educational issues, including a study of famine in today’s world.
