Write for Rights at St. Benedict

January 18, 2011 - This past month, on International Human Rights Day, St. Benedict hosted the Amnesty International Write for Rights letter writing campaign.  Students from the school wrote letters in support of cases where individual's Human Rights have been violated.  The Peace Posse organized the event because they felt that it was important for students to think about the well being of others, not just in the school but around the world.  Over three hundred students took part in the event and three hundred and fifty letters were written in support of four cases.  It was a great day for Social Justice.
