Write for Rights 2013
WRITE A LETTER. CHANGE A LIFE.
Every December, to mark International Human Rights Day, hundreds of thousands of people around the globe take part in the world’s largest human rights event: Write for Rights.
Ordinary people from all over the world face abuses to their human rights on a daily basis and we need your help to protect them. This year, we are writing letters, sending SMS messages, taking action online and hosting and participating in a variety of exciting events to demand that the rights of individuals are upheld.
If you would like to get involved, you can write a letter or attend an event near you; you can even run your own event. Every action can make a difference; something as simple as sending an email, an SMS or signing a petition all helps to lend a global voice to our activities. However big or small your participation, if we all join together our voices will be heard.
