Congratulations to Angie, one of our Amnesty International Madison Group #139 members. She was elected to the Amnesty International USA Board. We wish her good luck with her new position.
This week, a young man of 21 decided to start a race war in the U.S. by shooting 9 people attending a church service in Charleston. What did he accomplish... horror and heartbreak. What can we do? We can mourn and send condolences but we can also stand in solidarity for social justice and human rights. We will be stronger. Our voices will be louder. Our passion will turn to action. There will not be a race war in the U.S. or anywhere else as long we stand together.
May peace prevail on earth for all!
