Amnesty International invites letter writers to its annual Write for Rights event, Saturday, Dec. 5, 1-4 p.m., in the Dale Ross Board Room at Ames Public Library. Each December, AI members worldwide generate tens of thousands of letters on behalf of 12 cases of human rights violations. Cases this year are from Burkina Faso, Malaysia, USA, El Salvador, Greece, Mexico, Myanmar, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uzbekistan. The work is appropriate for high school age and older, but you may bring your youngsters. A laptop is helpful, but not required. We provide all letter-writing supplies and refreshments.
