You can promote freedom and human rights by joining Amnesty International’s annual Global Write-a-thon, the world’s largest letter writing event!

Sign up HERE.

This global action marking International Human Rights Day on December 10 brings people together just about anywhere – in classrooms, churches, workplaces, homes, and more – to make a difference in the lives of prisoners of conscience, human rights defenders, victims of torture and other individuals at risk.
Using the proven power of writing letters, they will pressure authorities to release those who have been unjustly imprisoned and to stop the torture and abuse of others.

It’s easy! Follow these simple steps:

• Sign up today! Then SPREAD the word and encourage your friends and family to register for the Write-a-thon by texting or emailing them the registration link: www.amnestyusa.org/writeathon

• Get your resources in early November: Learn how to hold a successful write-a-thon and download case summaries, sample letters and other promotional materials for your event. If you would like hard copies of these items, please feel free to email us at[email protected]

• WRITE and MAIL your letters from December 5-13!
(Feel free to start earlier than that and go through December.)

Promoting human rights is serious business, but it can also be fun. Make the Global Write-a-thon a part of your holiday celebrations this year and show your support for human rights.

Last year, more than 7,000 people across the United States sent tens of thousands of letters on behalf of the Write-A-Thon’s featured cases. Those letters made a difference in the lives of real people. » Read their stories
