Letter-Writing to Russian Political Prisoners Standing Up Against Injustice (Minnesota State Capitol)

Saturday, December 16, 2023 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join Russians Against War – Minnesota (RAW MN), World Without Genocide and The Museum of Russian Art for a public event at the Minnesota State Capitol devoted to writing letters to prisoners detained in Russia. These letters maintain contact with prisoners, affirming democratic ideals and giving them hope. Prisoners who receive letters are treated better because guards know that the prisoners aren’t alone – and prisoners respond with heartfelt, moving letters.

Materials are provided, Russian language skills are not required, and all are welcome. Minnesota State Senator Sandy Pappas will offer a free guided tour of the Capitol.

This event is free. Registration is not required.
