Write for Rights event
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.
Last year, more than five million messages were sent to world leaders demanding human rights progress. This year, activists are aiming to replicate that success, focussing on 10 cases in 10 countries and all focussed women human rights defenders.
