For the fourth year in a row, L.V. Rogers participated in Amnesty International’s Write for Rights last month.

Nelson joined millions of people from around the world as part of the “biggest global movements taking action to demand justice, respect and protection for human rights and an end to human rights violations.”

The event took place all day in the library. The Grade 11/12 Leadership Class will submit over 200 letters from students and staff in support of the Write for Rights campaign.
