Join us on Saturday, December 4th, 2 pm, at Los Reyes Bar and Grill, 2496 Broadway in Golden Hill (map), for our annual Write For Rights and Holiday Card Action event to commemorate Human Rights Day (December 10th). Every year in December, Amnesty International holds its Write for Rights action, the world’s biggest human rights event, where hundreds of thousands of people around the world gather together to send letters to authorities and cards of hope on behalf of people they’ve never met. Our letters help convince government officials to release people imprisoned for expressing their opinion, to stop torture, to commute death sentences, and to end other human rights abuses. Our holiday cards provide hope and badly needed emotional support for people experiencing serious human rights abuses. We will provide letterheads, cards, envelopes, stamps, pens, quesadillas and drinks! Look for our Amnesty sign in the covered outdoor seating area.
Group 137 will once again be meeting at Los Reyes Bar and Grill, 2496 Broadway in Golden Hill at the corner of Broadway and 25th to write letters on urgent human rights actions. Los Reyes has a covered outdoor eating area with open sides, so look for us there–we’ll have an Amnesty International sign on the table to help you find us. We’ll again be providing quesadillas and beverages for those in attendance. Note that we’re meeting an hour earlier than last time!
