International Human Rights Day, Amnesty International’s Write for Rights Campaign.

Letter-writing on behalf of individuals around the world whose human rights have been abused. All materials provided.

Who Do We Write To?

We write two letters: One is to the person in authority – it could be a king, president or head of police – who can help make change happen. The other letter is to the person (or group of people) we are fighting for, so they know we will never forget them.
