Happy new year! I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season, and I want to particularly welcome all of you who've joined recently! We hope to see everyone at the next meeting on Jan 20 at 5pm at the Friend's House. We're trying an earlier time this year. Please let us know if you have any problem with the new time. We'll be discussing plans for a social event in February, ideas for a fall conference, and setting other priorities for the next year. We'll also spend some time, as always, writing on behalf of our prisoners of conscience in China and Iran. We look forward to seeing you all and looking ahead to the next year!
