GET THE WRITE FOR RIGHTS KIT

FEATURING TEMPLATE LETTERS, CASE CARDS AND MORE

Welcome to Amnesty Write for Rights letter-writing and online action kit. In it, you’ll find everything you need to join Write for Write: our global letter-writing marathon and the world’s biggest human rights event.

Template letters

Every year, we ask supporters to write letters to the person in authority – it could be a queen, president or head of police – who can help make change happen. This kit contains 4 sample letters to your target. You can either copy these out in your own handwriting, or rewrite them, adding your own words.

Case posters

Show love and support for the people and their families by posting messages of solidarity on your social media accounts, using the hashtag #W4R20 and the pictures/ posters below:

Case cards

Read the stories of this year’s rights defenders, using the case cards below. At the back of each case sheet are two addresses. One is to a government or similar authority we are trying to persuade to help the person or people featured in that case. The second is for a solidarity letter to the person we want to help, or someone they are close to. This is your chance to write them a personal message of friendship or support.
