Just came back from my local Amnesty group meeting. We had our usual holiday potluck, worked hard on the Holiday Card Action, listened to a presentation from a few special guests and shared updates on various campaigns group members are working on. It’s a very productive evening.

December 10th being on a Sunday this year pushes a lot of Human Rights Day events to earlier this week. This year’s theme is Fighting Poverty: a matter of obligation, not charity. Most of the official UN events had already taken place but there are still a few community events to catch this weekend and next week.
