Thanks To Those Who Helped With Human Rights Month



The Payson Chapter of Amnesty International would like to thank the following individuals, churches and businesses for their support of our first annual Human Rights Awareness Month! Together we wrote over 250 letters to help free prisoners of conscience, raised awareness of human rights issues at home and abroad and have set the stage for continued human rights work in Payson.

Thank you East West Exchange for the gracious use of the bookstore and coffee shop for monthly meetings, film viewings and discussions and for hosting the Global Write-a-thon. We could not be doing this work without you!

We thank St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Crossroads Four Square Church, Mount Cross Lutheran Church, Community Presbyterian Church, Payson First Church of The Nazarene and Payson United Methodist Church for your participation in the Global Write-a-thon.

Thanks to Printing By George for your patience and assistance in all of our printing needs.

Thanks to Payson Education Center and Gail Wade for your efforts to involve students in human rights awareness and opening the door for a student chapter of Amnesty International in Payson.

And last but not least, thank you to all of you who took the time to write a letter to save a life. We invite you to join us at our monthly meeting at East West Exchange Coffee Shop and Book Store Monday, Jan. 17, at 6:30 p.m. as we continue our work to raise human rights awareness and take action to protect the rights of all people to live free from violence and injustice.

Penny Navis-Schmidt LCSW,
