Our friends at the Confluencenter are bringing the UA and Old Pueblo communities together once again with a Show and Tell on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 6 p.m. at Playground Bar and Lounge (278 E. Congress St.) with UA Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies Bill Simmons, who is launching a website that aims to revolutionize how human rights is taught and globally communicated, with an eye on defending those rights and to ultimately find achievable solutions to ending abuses. Funded by a Confluencenter "Innovation Farm" grant, the website, GlobalHumanRightsDirect.com, launches this month. For more info, go to www.confluencecenter.arizona.edu.
