Nate Wright is a junior at Georgetown from small-town Idaho. Active in numerous student groups supporting social justice, Nate was recently elected student body Vice President and acts as a coordinator for the Georgetown Tsunami Relief Effort. After attending a lecture given by Sudanese Bishop Macram Gassis on human rights last year, Nate approached students from different universities and co-founded STAND (Students Taking Action Now: Darfur), a national coalition designed to raise money for relief organizations, increase awareness of the situation in Darfur, and push for political action. MtvU has partnered with STAND for STANDFast, an event urging students to abstain from an everyday luxury for one day to raise funds for relief efforts in Darfur. Nate will be traveling to Africa for the first time.
