Write-a-Thon Events for December 3-11

United Church of Christ member sending out some light!

Amnesty’s annual Write-A-Thon joins like-minded people to make a difference by writing letters on behalf of prisoners of conscience. Amnesty is focusing on 14 cases this year.

We invite you to any or all of the events listed below. You’ll encounter great folks who share a desire to advance human rights, information on each prisoner of conscience, background and sample letters to help. Many events also provide light refreshments, and you’re more than welcome to bring treats to share. Please bring $1/letter for postage or mail your letters after the event.
