Write on International Human Rights Day

The local chapter of Amnesty International is celebrating International Human Rights Day with their annual Write-a-Thon.

Their goal is to write 300 letters (working towards a national total of more than 20,000) in support of individuals around the world who are immediately at risk - the spate of concerned letters to presidents, ambassadors, and other political figures in the country in question as well as here at home draws attention rapidly to severe situations (often for persons unjustly imprisoned), and letters of support offer comfort to those being persecuted.

So take time on your Saturday (the 9th) between 11-3 and head down to 14 Dundonald St. Have coffee and a cookie and make the world a better place.

(Or find another way to Take Action. If you can't donate, there are letter-writing campaigns year-round. A stamp isn't a lot, but it can make a big difference).
