Founder, Russians Against War - Minnesota
We cordially invite you to an extraordinary event taking place in our community, an art auction called "Building Bridges through Art".
The main objectives of this fundraiser are to support Russian political prisoners and Global Synergy Group (a non-profit that helps Ukraine in Minnesota). A staggering 600 political prisoners in Russia have been sentenced to 10 years due to their anti-war stance and actions. Often overlooked, this dimension of the war demands our attention and support.
We are thrilled to announce that our guest speaker for the evening will be Olga Sadovskaya, a renowned human rights activist who is famous for her work with Crew Against Torture. She was shortlisted for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017, and her insights promise to be both enlightening and inspiring.
We sincerely hope you can join us for this remarkable gathering.
The proceeds will be shared between support for Russian political prisoners through the organization Crew Against Torture and Global Synergy Group.
