Group 4 meetings

Our meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM in the den at Mosaic Coffee House, 4401 2nd Ave. NE, Seattle.

The Mosaic Coffee House is a nonprofit coffee house located in Seattle First Church (behind Dick's Drive In in the Wallingford Neighborhood). Check here for directions, free parking and bus line information.

The next Group 4 meeting is Tuesday, July 6, at the above time and location.

Our meetings are open to the public, and all are welcome.


Upcoming Events

Latest Update: Ribiya Kadeer had to cancel her talk, which we'll hopefully be able to reschedule for the fall. The Tiananmen Memorial at HUB Lawn from 4 - 6 pm on June 4 is still on.

Join our call for human rights in China on Friday, June 4, 4 - 6 pm at the HUB Lawn, University of Washington, with featured speaker Rebiya Kadeer. A coalition of human rights and Chinese democracy organizations will be holding a rally to focus on China's continuing policy of repression against it's citizens. We will commemorate the killing of hundreds of peaceful protesters at Tiananmen Square in 1989 and highlight more recent examples of China's often violent methods of denying basic human rights to it's citizens.

Speakers include:
Huo Ming Xue, China Democracy Party
Jin Xiu Lan, Seattle Federation for a Democratic China and Chinese Human Rights Alliance
Don Crevie, Amnesty International Group 4


Stop by our Amnesty International table, Saturday, June 5, 10 am - 3 pm, at the 2010 Annual Capitol Hill Garage Sale, at the People's Parking Lot, on Pine between Belmont & Summit.

Funds will help us fight to free prisoners of conscience, end persecution on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, support maternal health as a human right, and more! Every single dollar we raise means that we can send another letter to an international authority since each international stamp costs us $0.98.


Amnesty International Group 4 will once again have a booth all weekend at the Fremont Fair, Sat. June 19 - Sun. June 20. Stop by to sign our petitions, gather some literature and check out our t-shirts and other items!


Look for Amnesty International's table, run by volunteers from Group 4 and other northwest Amnesty groups, at upcoming concerts.

Stop by, sign our petitions and say hi!
