December 10: Write for Rights on International Human Rights Day

CUPE Saskatchewan’s Global Justice Committee encourages CUPE members to take part in Amnesty International’s Write for Rights events in Regina and Saskatoon on December 10, 2017 –International Human Rights Day. The write-a-thon events bring people together to write letters to human rights defenders and to the governments that are putting them at risk. The write-a-thons are taking place around the world on December 10th.  Your participation and action can help save lives, stop torture, free prisoners of conscience, and send messages of hope to those who have been unjustly jailed.


In Regina, the Amnesty Community and University Groups are co-hosting a Write for Rights event on December 10, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Artful Dodger, 1651 11th Avenue.
