May 2018 meeting - on 14th!
Just a head’s up about our next meeting. Due to bank holidays, we’re not meeting until Monday 14th May, when we’ll be working on the I Welcome campaign for refugees - many thanks to Anne & Jan for preparing this for us.
Amnesty UK’s report on it’s local groups has been published & you’ll be cheered to know that we sent nearly 18,000 letters, 20,000 Write For Rights cards & raised £119,684 for Amnesty. Not bad for 210 groups made up of people just like us.
There’s an interesting day celebrating women’s rights activism on 20th May, details here: https://www.amnesty.org.uk/issues/human-rights-defenders Everyone is welcome
