May 3 – Amnesty International Meeting

Join us for our monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 3, at the library at the University Friends Meeting House (4001 9th Avenue NE) from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.  First half hour is letter writing and socializing. Meeting starts at 7 pm.

May 3 is World Press Freedom Day. We will write letters on behalf of imprisoned journalists and also discuss the possibility of involvement in a local event in conjunction with events worldwide on behalf of Khadija Ismayilova, an investigative reporter imprisoned in Azerbaijan, on her May 27, her 40th birthday.
