Three members of the John Stark Regional High School Amnesty International group spoke at the Dec. 7 meeting of the Henniker Rotary. Amnesty International is a worldwide organization with more than 7 million members and supporters dedicated to protecting human rights. The John Stark Student Chapter is active in hosting community awareness for the organization (a booth at Music on Main Street in Henniker and Activity Day at school for example), attends conferences, and hosted the movie screening of SOLD at New England College and will present 8 Borders, 8 Days at John Stark later this year.

Additional projects undertaken by the JSRHS Chapter include “Write for Rights,” the annual December project where members across the globe encourage people to write letters, emails and social media to leaders about specific human rights cases. Again this year, the JSRHS Chapter will be set up in the school atrium with all the materials and information students, faculty and staff will need to participate.
