Amnesty International Holiday Card & Letter Party 2014

Our neighbor Kam invites everyone to join this annual event for Amnesty International, which has the power to undo wrongs and change lives:

Dear neighbors, The Austin group of Amnesty International will be holding our holiday card-and-letter-writing party, Write for Rights, Saturday, December 13, 6-9pm, at the Sahara Lounge, 1413 Webberville Road, with music by Jenifer Jackson and Dickie Lee Erwin.

Right now, human rights activists are imprisoned—not because of any crime—but because of their race, sexual orientation, or political or religious beliefs. On Saturday, December 13, join the world’s largest grassroots human rights campaign for their release. And write holiday cards to let these prisoners of conscience know they are not alone, they are not forgotten.

Join us at the Sahara Lounge any time from 6-9pm. Write letters while you have an adult beverage and listen to music by Jenifer Jackson and Dickie Lee Erwin (music at 7pm). Your messages will join the 2 million messages flooding in to government offices and prisons around the world. Prisoners will be heartened and encouraged. Prisoners will be RELEASED!

During last year’s Write for Rights campaign, hundreds of thousands of people in 143 countries around the world wrote more than 2 million letters and cards. Three Prisoners of Conscience were released, and all ten of the individuals and communities featured received messages of hope and support. Here are some stories:

Letter writing has always been at the core of Amnesty’s work, and 53 years of human rights activism show that letters really do have the power to change lives. Please join us. Have some fun while doing good. Pass the word. Bring some friends.

Yours, Kam
