SLAVERY IS NOT HISTORY...YET!
Group 22 "dresses up" and marches in the Doo Dah Parade to protest human trafficking (modern-day slavery).

Visit our Doo-Dah 2009 page for story and photos!

Our 2008 entry was Waterboardin' USA (photo at right). We've missed only three parades since 1998. See our Doo-Dah pages for 1998, 1999, 2005 and 2008. See our Facebook page (see sidebar) for pix of our 2011 entry.


Welcome to Amnesty International Group 22
in Pasadena, California

Group 22 is one of many local affiliates of Amnesty International USA, which in turn is the United States national section of the worldwide Amnesty International movement. Founded in 1961, AI works impartially for the release of all prisoners of conscience, fair and prompt trials for political prisoners, and an end to torture and executions (for further information, see the brief history and description and the text of the definition of human rights). Group 22 is both a registered student group at Caltech and a community local group for the Pasadena area. 

New members are always welcome!
Simply show up any of our events listed below. Our monthly meetings or letter-writing sessions are especially good places to start. See the map for directions.

AI Group 22 Upcoming Events for December 2016

Saturday, December 10, 11 AM - 4 PM, WRITE FOR RIGHTS. Dog Haus Biergarten, 93 E. Green St., Pasadena.
We will send letters and cards of support for the 12 cases that Amnesty features this year. Drop by to write a few letters and enjoy the food. (This event will replace our usual Tuesday letter writing in December.)

Sunday, December 18, 4 PM. Holiday Potluck and Book Group. Location to be confirmed, probably at Joyce's house in Montrose. For information, email aigp22@caltech.edu or phone 818-249-4056. You're absolutely welcome even if you haven't read the book!
The book for December is "Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America" by Erika Lee and Judy Yung. See our current newsletter for reviews. Since the book is quite long, you might want to just read one or two sections.
Unfortunately this book is available from Vroman's only if you do a pre-paid special order and there is no book group discount. The Huntington Library has copies in their bookstore (you can go into the store without paying the entry fee to the gardens). Pasadena Library and LA County Library each have one copy available. It's also possible to buy used copies online or download e-books.

No Thursday meeting in December. Happy Holidays!
