Amnesty Mid-Hudson Write for Rights

Write a letter, change a life!Amnesty International USA Mid-Hudson is hosting a Global Write for Rights event with us on Sunday, December 8, 2019 between 1–4pm. Amnesty International holds this annual event throughout the globe. When thousands of people write the same letter, our voices united cannot be ignored. This year we will be writing letters on behalf of 10 youth human rights defenders. The cases include José Adrián arrested and beaten by police in Mexico, Indigenous Anishinaabe Grassy Narrows Youth growing up with mercury poison in Canada, Marinel Sumook Ubaldo fighting against the climate crisis in the Philippines, and Yasaman Aryani in prison for advocating for women’s rights in Iran.For more info check out the event here or contact amnestyhudsonvalley@gmail.com
