Amnesty International at Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga

 UCM receives "Urgent Action" information from Amnesty International every month. These news items are about matters of immediate and urgent importance. Examples of these issues include people being incarcerated without being charged or tried for speaking out about injustice in their country. Letters are written that relate to our current interest in refugees from the crisis in the Middle East and other related issues. This is an initiative of our Social Responsibility Committee. Letters are composed, copied and signed by members of the congregation and then sent to the appropriate persons.
