Write For Rights
« on: November 24, 2007, 09:08:21 PM »
Hey skullgirl, found something you might be interested in. Well I mean to say I hope your interested in. Dec. 10th is Human Rights Day. Amnesty International has a great campaign going on. Write for Rights. You can register and get sponsored and raise money for them, or you can just do it anonymously of course. Check out the questions and answers section, anyone can join. I wish all schools would get involved, you can help someone at the same time as learn about human rights, to keep them strong and alive.

Well, skullgirl, these things always begin at home. So why don't you think about how human rights are still challenged / under threat in Canada?

Just my $0.02.

As a class? That is fantastic kid  :yay:

Let me know what the class decides to write about. Will it be individuals or the entire class around one specific case?
