Sign A Petition

Okay, I know you’re going to have a busy weekend. Today’s Act of Change will take less time than pouring a cup of coffee. Here you go: visit Amnesty International’s home page and sign the petition to free Iranian activist Hengameh Shahidi. All you need is your first name, last name, and an email address.

This woman is a journalist who has been imprisoned since June 2009 for charges that, according to Amnesty, “In no way justify her imprisonment”. You can read her full story on the Amnesty website, or the Free Hengameh Shahidi Facebook page, or her website.

Done. Now enjoy your coffee, have a great weekend, and come back on Sunday for another Amnesty-related challenge!
