Write for Human Rights Write-a-thon at the Ottawa Mennonite Church
I organized a write-a-thon for the Write for Human Rights small group at the Ottawa Mennonite Church the other Sunday. I put the announcement 3 weeks before in the bulletin. It was after service, and I scheduled 2 hours for it. Not many people stayed and participated, but the 6 that were there wrote many letters. I prepared documents with case profiles and directions for mailing the petitions. The petitions included peace in South Sudan, peace in Syria, free Rafael Braga Vieira in Brazil, close Guantanamo, and Indigenous peoples' rights & resource exploration. Here are the petitions for download.
