Honor Human Rights Day: Celebration of Life of Martha Spiegelman



Jones Library (43 Amity St, Amherst, MA 01002 MA)

Honor Human Rights Day by celebrating the life and service of our beloved local Amnesty International coordinator, Martha Spiegelman (1937-2023). Share any memories or appropriate readings, poems or music in her honor as well as discuss current injustices and human rights abuses and triumphs.
Also, Amherst Regional Middle School students will mark their 10th year of creating beautiful and meaningful artwork based on the 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The exhibit will be on display in the Jones Library during the month of December. Students and teachers will make a short presentation.
In addition, Martha and her spouse Irwin Spiegelman found Thomas Paine Friends (www.thomas-paine-friends.org and www.facebook.com/thomaspainefriends) with which they sponsored regular events calling attention to injustices and human rights issues emanating from the spirit of the writings of Thomas Paine.
