Event Series: Two Years of Conflict in Ukraine

World Without Genocide will hold two events in February to mark the second anniversary of Russia’s war in Ukraine, and to highlight international criminal justice efforts.


Write to Political Prisoners in Russia – Two Years of Protest

Monday, February 19, 2024, 6:00 – 8:00 pm CT

The Museum of Russian Art, 5500 Stevens Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55419, (612) 821-9045

For two years, Putin has imprisoned thousands of people in Russia who have protested the war in Ukraine. The public is invited to write letters to these prisoners of conscience. Letters are sent electronically to a secure portal in Russia, and prisoners are able to write back. Reply letters are translated and returned to the original 'pen pal' writers. Prisoners getting letters receive better treatment because guards know that the prisoners aren't alone. There is no fee, materials are provided, Russian language skills are not needed, and all are welcome. Diversity credits are available for Mitchell Hamline students. Registration is not required.

Ukraine has been a battleground for the last century as Ukrainian people have fought for sovereignty and independence against brutal dictators. On this second anniversary of Russia’s war in Ukraine, we highlight mechanisms used today in international, regional, and domestic courts to prosecute perpetrators of the war’s atrocities. Speakers include Dr. Ellen Kennedy, Executive Director, and Minnesota legislators.


This webinar is open to the public: $10 general public; $5 students and seniors; $25 for two Continuing Legal Education credits for Minnesota lawyers (pending); and free to Mitchell Hamline students. Diversity credits are available for Mitchell Hamline students and mentor externship credit is available for University of St. Thomas Law students.
