2016 Write-a-thon

2016 Group 49 Write-a-thon   On Sunday December 11, at our annual day of writing letters for prisoners of conscience , Amnesty members, people from the community and from the First Unitarian Church came together during a long afternoon of writing letters. The event was Open House, with people welcomed to come whenever they could, and leave whenever they needed to. We offered refreshments, and to enliven a serious afternoon, we held several drawings for prizes, with support from friends in our business community. We wrote and mailed 380 letters, though the true number is larger than that because some people took letters with them to finish at home, and to mail themselves. Our letters went to many countries, on behalf of many prisoners of conscience and others at risk. read more here
