More about Write For Rights:

For over 20 years, Amnesty International’s annual Write for Rights campaign has transformed the lives of people whose rights have been wronged. Using the power of their words, Write for Rights supporters have united behind a common purpose: together, we can change lives for the better.

Letter writing has always been at the heart of Amnesty International’s work and over 60 years of activism shows us that words have power. Last year, we took over 4.6 million actions and our members hosted events in more than 200 countries, including 162 events across Canada. Together we wrote millions of letters, emails and Tweets and signing petitions.
