Amnesty In­ter­na­tional Prince Ge­orge will be host­ing a Write for Rights event on Mon­day evening.

It’s set for Artspace, above Books and Com­pany at 1685 Third Ave., from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

It is part of a world­wide let­ter-writ­ing cam­paign in the name of stand­ing up for hu­man rights. It will also fea­ture a can­dle­light­ing cer­e­mony and a choir from Har­win El­e­men­tary School.
