Amnesty International: Call to Action
The annual conference of Amnesty International-USA (AI-USA) will be held between March 30 and April 1 in Denver, Colorado. AI members from all around the United States will attend. LPDOC Chapter contacts also will attend to reach out to AI members to reenergize members’ support for Leonard Peltier’s release. How can you help? Write a letter to the new Executive Director of AI-USA, Ms. Suzanne Nossel. Congratulate her on her new position and let her know that you approve of her commitment to work for the freedom of political prisoners. Urge Ms. Nossel to actively support freedom for Leonard Peltier. During the conference and throughout April, write to: Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director, Amnesty International USA, 5 Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10001.

Call to Action
In late 2011, the National Congress of American Indians, representative of 500+ Indigenous Nations, passed an historic resolution on Leonard’s behalf. If you are a U.S. supporter, please print a copy of the Resolution (PDF) and send it to your Members of Congress. Urge them to advocate with President Obama for Leonard’s release. Other supporters around the world may send a copy to President Obama or a nearby U.S. embassy or consulate. Also encourage the Assembly of First Nations in Canada as well as other Indigenous assemblies/organizations worldwide to pass similar resolutions to help secure freedom for Leonard Peltier.
