Letter writers unite behind cause of human rights

On Saturday, Dec. 10, For International Human Rights Day, Amnesty International’s Kelowna chapter will hold its annual Write for Rights write-a-thon.

People are invited to come to The Pit near the main theatre at Okanagan College at 7 p.m. to write messages of greeting in cards to be sent to prisoners of conscience around the world and to sign letters to governments in regard to specific cases, urging the governments to act to respect human rights.

For more information about this Amnesty International letter writing campaign, call the letter-writing organizers at 250-769-4740.
