December 10: Write for Rights on International Human Rights Day

Write for Rights is fast approaching!

On December 10, 2017 – International Human Rights Day – Amnesty International supporters in Canada and around the world will be taking part in Amnesty’s annual Write for Rights write-a-thon, the world’s largest letter-writing event, now in 80 countries. This year, we will aim to surpass the 4.6 million letters written and actions taken in 2016 – letters and actions to help save lives, stop torture, free prisoners of conscience, and send messages of hope to those who have been unjustly jailed.

In Regina – the Amnesty Community and University Groups are co-hosting a Write for Rights event on December 10th from 2:00pm to 4:30pm at the Artful Dodger, 1651 11th Avenue.

In Saskatoon – the Amnesty International Community Group is hosting a Write for Rights event on December 10th from  2pm to 4:00pm at Augustana Lutheran Church, 1201 Broadway Avenue.

We encourage everyone to consider planning an event in your community, school or workplace!!!

There are lots of great resources available now at the 2017 Write for Rights site:
