Wake-up Human Rights Defenders... Spring is here!

 A great start for our official waking up of winter hibernation .... Our first 'tabling' activity at the Amherst Farmers Market was a lot of fun on Sat 4/19/14 ... Thanks to our creative leader, Martha, who decorated the table with flying balloons and bright posters of human rights success stories around the world... Thanks to those came and did the Human Rights Walk inside the Farmers Market, and those who could not come and were there in spirit..

We have a good tentative agenda for our monthly meeting on 4/26....
1. Schedule for tabling on Amherst Common on Saturdays (pls send us the dates you can volunteer even if it was only 30min on a Sat... it's a good chance to shop at the Farmers Market)
2. Making our “talking points” about International Violence Against Women
    Act (IVAWA) for the meeting with Sen. Warren’s staff (on Mon, Aug 28,
3. Starting to brainstorm about the Human Rights Day (yes, we are starting now!)
4. The anti-drone Article to be introduced in Town Meeting this Spring (Drones just killed 3 innocent civilians in Yemen)
5. Financial Report (bring creative ideas to increase our budget for a full-of-events season ahead)
6. Other issues
