Seattle Writes For Rights

Every year Amnesty International celebrates the Dec 10th signing of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights by organizing a worldwide letter writing campaign, highlighting a selection of cases taken from the work we do all year long.

Tens of thousands of letters letting governments know that the world is watching and is not content to sit by and do nothing. Seattleites can be a part of this by coming to the Montlake Public Library on Sunday December 10th from 2:00 – 4:00.

Snacks will be provided.
