Write for Rights is the world’s largest human rights event. It’s a moment when Amnesty International’s seven million supporters around the world join together in a letter-writing blitz calling on governments to respect the rights of selected individuals at risk.
We have had many successes over the years including the release of political prisoners, the ending of torture in specific cases and in bringing human rights offenders to justice. Drop in to Seven Shores Café and find out about the 11 cases we are highlighting this year.
You can make a difference by signing letters to governments defending the rights of refugees, indigenous peoples, prisoners of conscience and victims of torture! You can also help support human rights defenders and their families by sending them messages of hope and solidarity.
If you are unable to attend, you can still participate at http://www.writeathon.ca/
