Join the campaign and change a life today
When we all act together, we are more powerful. That is the driving force behind Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global campaign and the world’s biggest human rights event.
The people you are helping today want to make the word a better place. They are demanding justice, and human rights for all. Many have been imprisoned, disappeared and attacked.
Every year, millions of individuals write letters, sign petitions and organise events. And it works! People are freed, justice is served, and the world becomes a better place. Every action counts, and these people need your help. Act now.
From the bottom of my heart, this campaign has kept me alive, it’s what has stopped them from killing me because they know that you are there.JANI SILVA, environmental defender, 2021
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.
