As an Amnesty International supporter since my university days I’ve signed up to write. Will you?
“Our words have power. That’s the idea behind Write for Rights, Amnesty International’s global letter-writing campaign that happens on or around December 10th (International Human Rights Day).
We’ve been doing it every year for 20 years and today, it’s the world biggest human rights event. From 2,326 letters in 2001 to 4.5 million letters, tweets, emails and more last year, Write for Rights supporters have used the power of their words to unite behind a common purpose – backing people no matter where they are in the world.
Together, we’ve helped transform the lives of more than 100 people over the years, freeing them from torture, harassment, or unjust imprisonment. Write a letter, change a life – including yours.”
