The guest speaker will be 20-year-old Jewher Ilham, the daughter of imprisoned Uighur scholar, Ilham Tohti. In 2013, while accompanying her father for a visit to the U.S., Jewher took an Indianapolis-bound flight by herself when Chinese authorities detained Tohti, who will be tried for a life sentence on a charge of separatism. It was the last time they would see each other. As she made a new home in America, Jewher began advocating for her father, who is recognized worldwide as a moderate voice for ethnic Uighurs in Northern China. The event is free and open to the public.
