TODAY Write a Letter, Change a Life

Monday, Nov. 27, and Wednesday, Nov. 29, 4:30 ‐ 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Nov. 28 and Thursday, Nov. 30, 12:30 – 2 p.m., drop by the KC to join the Human Rights Lab in taking part in Amnesty International’s annual Write for Rights campaign, the largest human rights event in the world!

Write letters for those whose rights have been violated, showing solidarity and applying pressure on decision makers. These letters are proven to make a difference in people’s lives. U.S. citizen Rocky Myers, who’s on death row despite numerous problems in his case, is one of eleven people highlighted in this year’s campaign.

Stationary, sample letters, and case information will be provided at the table in the KC. Write there or take materials to go. For each letter you write you may earn volunteer hours and be entered into a raffle for prizes. Plus there will be snacks!

If you are off campus or unable to make it to the KC, email to learn how to participate remotely or schedule a separate time to pick up materials.

“Drawing Together” Dec. 7 at Mudd Library

Join us for the FINAL “Drawing Together” of the semester on Thursday, Dec. 7, starting at 7 p.m. in the Mudd Library Living Room. This end-of-semester “Drawing Together” is all about decompressing with comics: We’ll have SNACKS, DRAWING SUPPLIES, COLORING BOOK pages, and BOOKS from the Albion College Graphic Medicine Collection. For those interested, we’ll also be making a short, hand-folded ZINE! This is an opportunity to get together, make marks on paper, and have a good time — no art experience required!

Thank you to everyone who has joined us for any of the “Drawing Together” workshops this semester — we have loved building this community and hope to see you on Dec. 7! We also hope you’ll continue to enjoy the books in the Graphic Medicine Collection year-round!
