Write For Rights

If your words could save lives, would you write them down? From December 10 to January 19th, you will have the opportunity to do just that–to write for rights! Supporting the efforts of Amnesty International, The Burlington Slam Project is hosting its 1st annual Global Write-a-Thon, a massive letter-writing campaign aimed at freeing prisoners of conscience and individuals at risk across the world. Write a letter on behalf of imprisoned human rights activists, people unfairly sentenced to death, victims of forced evictions, and many more cases! Bring your letters to the Burlington Slam December 15th 2011, or January 19th 2012, and if you choose, read your letter on the open mic (8-9pm). Winter holiday-themed treats will be provided for those who handwrite their letters. So come out and support human rights across the globe! Your words CAN make a difference—so use them.
