Write For Rights

on December 3, 2016


Amnesty International’s Program, Write for Rights. takes place during the month of December.

From the website: Sometimes a letter can change someone’s life. That’s the premise of Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global letter-writing campaign. Today, it’s one of the world’s biggest human rights events.

Every December, Amnesty supporters across the globe will write millions of letters for those whose basic human rights are being attacked. They are people like you, continuing a long tradition of writing letters to right some of the world’s biggest wrongs.

And it’s not just letters – it could be petitions, emails, Tweets, Facebook posts, photos, postcards. Your words really can change lives. Join us.

The list of this year’s cases can be found here.

Amnesty International has done all the work and sample letters can be found for each person as well as ways to submit on-line letters in support of this year’s cases rights.

It only takes a few minutes, but Write for Rights is a great way to champion for someone who has lost their rights. I hope you will join me in writing.
