This Saturday is our chapter’s annual event, one of our best events of the year because it is the most fun. From 4 – 9 p.m., we will be at Schlafly Bottleworks writing letters for Amnesty International’s Write-a-Thon. Group volunteers will be tabling in the foyer, providing information on current domestic and international human rights issues and opportunities to take action via signing petitions and writing letters. If you can please come and learn more about human rights, take action, and enjoy some great food, drinks, and company.
If you can’t come out, then please still write for right by taking action on this year’s cases on your own time. This blog will be helping out by publishing sample letters around these cases, one for each day between Dec. 5 – 16, which is when Amnesty International is writing for rights! Use these posts to craft your own letters, or to encourage others to write letters on these issues. This is part of big push to have thousands of people writing thousands of letters in the days surrounding Human Rights Day, which is December 10. Pledge to write for rights!
