Letter to the Editor- Seeking justice through media

, , and

Editor, The Channels:

Hello, My name is Sudhama Ranganathan and I recently graduated from the University of Connecticut’s school of Landscape Architecture here in the United States.

While there I experienced discrimination, harassment and abuse like I have never before.

This behavior was based on my race, a conviction from participating in a violent student protest in 1990 and of course post- 9/11 hysteria.

I am pursuing redress and justice on this matter and am writing you in hopes of some help or a point in the right direction.

I have tried some organizations as well as private attorneys some of whom are interested, but whose fees I cannot afford, so now I turn to the media.

I am seeking justice for myself, for those that came before me and especially for those who will come after me.

I have a description of what happened to me and some pieces of evidence online at www.lawsuitagainstuconn.com. Please look it over if you have a chance.

I am looking to get my story out to expose what happened to me so that others might be warned.

Please feel free to pass this information along if you think of someone who might have any interest, advice suggestions, etc. Thanks so much.
