Letter Writing for Truth and Reconciliation
How Can I Help??
Hello again church friends. Many are looking something to do to help our Indigenous Friends. When I was younger, when I didn’t have much, I asked the same question. I started writing letters for Amnesty, handwritten. I found out how powerful these can be when they arrive at the desks of government officials, even something simple and short. Many wrongfully convicted were freed!!
The Yasodhara Ashram has kindly lent me samples of the letters they’re writing to government officials. Did you know you don’t have to pay postage to federal government officials? I have left the paper copies at the office with Debbie for those (like me) who need to read on paper. Also attached are the digital letters for you to read and/or print out. Remember, every little letter (from a voter!) has a huge impact. You can just write your own truth from your heart. Please let me know if you get a reply (please put your return address).
