Write for Rights

"Women human rights defenders are under threat worldwide – so under threat that Amnesty International has chosen to focus all of this year’s Write for Rights cases on courageous women peacefully advocating for human rights"

"Sometimes a letter can change someone’s life. That’s the premise of Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global letter-writing campaign. We’ve been doing it for 15 years and today, it’s the world’s biggest human rights event. 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."

The Summerlea Outreach Committee will be presenting copies of three letters for individuals to sign (and individualize as you wish) and return to us to be sent to the concerned individuals or agencies.
