Group 137 will be holding our annual Write for Rights/Holiday Card Action on Saturday, December 2nd at 3 pm at Mazara Trattoria, 2302 30th St (map), and we invite you to join us! This event will be in lieu of our regularly-scheduled group meeting on the 2nd Saturday of the month, so there will be no other meeting in December. As in past Write for Rights events, we plan to provide a piece of Mazara’s mega-delicious tiramisu to everyone who joins us for this important human rights action! Look for us at the long table in the back room with the Amnesty sign.
Write for Rights is Amnesty’s global campaign in December in honor of Human Rights Day (December 10th). Every year thousands of human rights activists around the world take part in Write for Rights, sending solidarity cards of support to people who’ve had their basic human rights violated as well as writing letters to the authorities on their behalf. Over the years Write for Rights has grown into the world’s biggest human rights event.
