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.
Amnesty Kirklees will be holding TWO Write for Rights events this year; one in North Kirklees (Huddersfield and surrounding areas) on 7 December and a second in South Kirklees (Dewsbury/Batley and surrounding areas) on 14 December, with venues to be confirmed shortly. We invite all members and friends interested in promoting human rights and actively demonstrating solidarity with those being denied them to join us. Come along to write cards and messages of support for activists and prisoners of conscience all over the world.
