Payson Amnesty Group Hosts Statewide Event


The Payson chapter of Amnesty International will for the fourth year join the parade of the 2014 World’s Oldest Continuous Rodeo and host a special picnic afterward.

Following the parade, Payson Amnesty International will host its Second Annual Human Rights Picnic and statewide gathering and outreach event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Rumsey Park, Ramada 3. Members of Amnesty International, their families and friends, and anyone interested in exploring human rights are invited to join fellow activists and grow the movement for human rights awareness and activism in Payson and around the state.

This local chapter event will host Amnesty International members from across Arizona. Joining the picnic will be Amnesty Inter­national Chapters from Payson, Prescott and the metro Phoenix area. The event will be an opportunity to learn about human rights and how everyday people around the world are working to uphold them. Join us to learn more about human rights — what they are, how we work to protect them, and how you can get involved. The event is free and open to the public and a picnic lunch will be provided.
