Legislative letter-writing sessions during social hour

Would you likletter writinge to host a letter-writing session one Sunday, asking our members and friends to write to their legislators to move on a particular bill or issue, or foreign leaders to move on a particular issue? If you are interested, please contact Judy Deutsch at She and Sherene Aram will guide you in the process.

And, here is a followup from one letter-writing session: AnnMarie Lanza writes:

As a follow-up to our tabling event at First Parish, Human Rights defenders Leyla Yunus and her husband Arif Yunus have been conditionally released from prison in Azerbaijan because of deteriorating health.  Amnesty International considers this to be a step in the right direction that will send a crucial message of hope, not just for Leyla and Arif, but for all prisoners of conscience in Azerbaijan.  At our letter writing event at First Parish, 17 members of our congregation signed a petition addressed to the President of Azerbaijan demanding their release.  Here is an example that letter writing can change lives!  Thank you for your support.
