January Letter Writing Circle 2016

Monthly Letter Writing Poster 2015Happy New Year everyone! Let’s make 2016 a year of peace, justice and happiness by taking action and speaking out on behalf of those who cannot. Your voice matters and writing a letter can make a difference!

Please join us on Tuesday, January 5th from 7pm – 9pm at the Owl Acoustic Lounge here in Lethbridge to write letters for prisoners of conscience and urgent human rights actions. This Tuesday we will be writing letters to Saudi Arabian authorities to protect a poet from execution for apostasy. We will be writing  the United Arab Emirates calling for an end to the torture of prisoners through the use of loud noise and music and writing to protect Chinese activists that are being deported from Thailand and likely sent back to China where they risk being tortured. We supply the pens, paper and postage all you need to do is write the letters!
