We intend to prepare packets as we normally do, but we’re not going to seal them in the hope that you show up, sign the letters on the spot and, most importantly, we get to know each other and learn why you are a supporter of human rights and what we can do to be a more effective organization.

These are the appeals for which we’ve created letters for attendees to sign:

We intend to have refreshments, literature and materials for you to write your own handwritten appeal letters. Remember to invite others to learn about the activities of our chapter!

Spread the word on Facebook.

If you’d like to receive the letters we’re making, pay $25 and join us. You’ll receive 3 such packets per year.
