Write a letter, change a life
Amnesty International’s Write for Rights campaign transforms the lives of people whose rights have been wronged.
Write for Rights supporters are united by their desire to make a difference. In recent years, we’ve seen real change to people’s lives because of your action. From Zimbabwe to Guatemala, activists have been released and justice delivered.
This year's campaign features people from around the world, all connected because their human rights have been violated. Some by their governments, others by the police, or by big corporations. All because of who they are and what they do.
Together, we can fight for their rights.
Join Write for Rights today.
I really appreciate the thoughts, the love and the solidarity. It means so much to me and I don't take it for granted.Netsai Marova, Zimbabwean opposition activist
Take action and protect their rights today.
NOW, WRITE A LETTER
Signing a petition is a great way to take part in the campaign. But did you know there are other ways to take part in Write for Rights?
Imagine being locked away, alone, not knowing if anyone cares where you are. Now imagine receiving a letter from someone, telling you they believe in you. That’s what real letters can do: bring hope to people in the direst of situations. When letters arrive in huge numbers, they are also an unmistakable reminder to prison authorities and others that the world is watching.
