Write for Rights 2018

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.

Every year, we ask supporters, members, activists and student activists to write letters, to the person in authority – it could be a king/queen, president or head of police – who can help make change happen and also send a message of solidarity addressed to the person or group of people we are fighting for (and/or their family) to express support so they know we will never forget them.

Your words have power. Write for rights now
