Our regular Group 4 meeting for December has been cancelled as one of our write-a-thons is on December 7, which would have been our regular night. Please consider coming to one or more of our write-a-thons, and come back for our regular meeting in January!
Join us for one or more of our local write-a-thon events on December 7, 10 and 12!
YOUR WORDS HAVE POWER
They can bring FREEDOM to prisoners of conscience. They can demand JUSTICE for survivors of torture. They can offer HOPE to human rights defenders at risk.
Your words can SAVE LIVES
Each year hundreds of thousands of people across the world mark International Human Rights Day on December 10 by taking part in Amnesty International’s Write for Rights Global Write-a-thon – the world’s largest letter writing event. We write letters to demand that the rights of individuals are respected, protected and fulfilled. In doing so, we show solidarity with those suffering human rights abuses and work to bring about real change in people’s lives.
Join us for any or all of our local write-a-thons:
Tuesday, December 7, 6 -9 pm, Happy Hour at Jillian’s Billiards Club, 731 Westlake Ave. N
