Annual Write for Rights event presented by Amnesty International
Saturday, Dec 11 from 4-6pm
University United Methodist Church
1120 S. Harrison Rd, East Lansing.
JOIN US THIS SATURDAY!
This event is to support Amnesty International in their efforts to secure the release of political prisoners around the world. Each year, Amnesty picks individuals on their watch list who are imprisoned or being denied their rights because of their work against political injustice in their countries. We gather to sign cards of support for those imprisoned and also letters to their government leaders asking for their release. There will be information sheets outlining the situation of each person chosen.
In the holiday spirit, we will also share finger foods and beverages and have a chance to visit with friends. We are using a large room with tables spaced widely to minimize close contact. The cards for signing will be in a hallway separate from the food area.
Please only come if you are vaccinated.
Masks required except for eating.
The 2021 Alternative Holiday Sale was a wonderful success! Thanks to all our vendors, volunteers, and shoppers!

These four programs offer alternatives and actions we can take to redirect our common wealth for the health and prosperity of people and the planet.
