Another Successful Event...!

Thanks to all who made the Fundraiser Tag Sale a successful event that netted us over $500 in 5 hours!

This is a good net revenue especially in this difficult economic time...
Again like in last year's Tag Sale, books sold very good (thanks for the good titles our dear member Nigel and others picked @ the Amherst Book Recycling Ctr).
The low price strategy attracted more students, major customers at any Tag sale in the begining of the school year....
Petitions/information table was another success and donation put in the Stamps jar was over $3... We forgot this year to have Greeting Cards available on the table to write and mail to our POC, Karim Amer (sorry Karim, we hope to send you one when you are free, soon Inshalla!).
Thanks to our elected State legislators, Rep Ellen Story and Senator Stan Rosenberg for continuing to
show their commitment to human rights and support to Amnesty International. Both legislators gave powerful speech and saluted Amnesty International on its 50th Anniversary, and the 32 anniversary of the local chapter

A brief video of their talk will be posted here later.

We also want to remind our members and other human rights activists in the area that the
2010 Northeast Regional Conference will be held on Boston University Campus on Sat Nov 13th. We are hoping many will be able to attend this important event.
The Conference will be divided into workshops and of them will be focusing on auung Sun Su Kyi, one of our adopted POC cases.
Conference registration :
$40 Regular
$30 Students, seniors, Limited Income
Registration Deadline is Mon, Nove 1, 2010
