Yowling Creation of Amnesty International: Dec. 11

For some creators, their yowling takes the form of an outcry for social justice. Such is the case for artists, film makers, and writers who are routinely arrested for daring to speak out through their art about atrocities they see in their countries of origin. This month Amnesty International is sponsoring its annual “Write for Rights Global Write-a-thon” to support the release of those who have heeded the call in their spirit and risked death, persecution, and imprisonment to challenge the dark truths of their societies.

They’re students, teachers, scholars, and housewives. Yowling Creators. Like you, like me.

Check out Liu Xiaobo, who has been in prison for 11 years. He was put there for writing articles about censorship, corruption, and oppression. In 2010, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize but remains in jail at Jinzhou Prison in northeast China.

You can help…

A friend of mine decided to partner with Amnesty International by hosting a letter-writing event in her apartment. She invited me. But I want to do more, so I’m extending an opportunity for you to participate in whatever way you can and feel called. Amnesty International says, “Your words can change lives.”

It’s easy…

Join up with a few friends and log on to find a letter-writing event or host your own. Amnesty International shows you how step by step and provides all the resources you’ll need: stories about prisoners, where to send, what to say, and even how much postage you’ll need for the envelope.

It works…

Sometimes we wonder how we can make a difference. Here’s your chance. Amnesty International has a proven track record of successes and shares these stories on its website as well. We all have had experiences, as children or even adults, when we wished someone would’ve spoken up to defend us in difficult or unfair situations. To be honest, this is what compels me now. We never know when we might need someone to step forward and take the time to say a few words to set us free.

Did you follow the yowling of your spirit and participate? Tell us your story at Yowling Creator…
