Dear Beautiful People,
Every year during the first weeks of December, Amnesty International holds the world’s largest human rights event, Write for Rights. This is a global letter writing marathon in which people write letters of protest to governments about human rights issues… and letters of hope and solidarity to the people and families involved.

I started writing letters for Write for Rights in 2011, and it has become an annual tradition for me! I invite you to join me this year!

If you are interested, please visit one of the Write for Rights sites to get more information and check out the case sheets. Each sheet explains the situation and lists addresses. The sites also provide sample letters that you can print up and sign… they make it very easy!

I am going to start my letters this weekend… my goal is to send 5 cards of solidarity and 8 protest letters!

And I’d love it if you’ll join me in writing! Questions and Comments: please type below or message me.

Happy Day,
rift

Wow, I just read the blurbs about this year's cases and the lack of justice is horrifying. I will be sending letters and cards over my winter vacation. Thanks for making me aware of this!

I put my first couple letters in the mail this morning... and put a pic on my much ignored blog. :) I hope it inspires you to write a couple letters too!
