Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally. We are campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.

Through detailed research and determined campaigning, Amnesty International helps fight abuses of human rights worldwide.

Only when the last prisoner of conscience has been freed, when the last torture chamber has been closed, when the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a reality for the world’s people, will our work be done.

Sometimes a letter can change someone’s life. That’s the premise of Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global letter-writing campaign and the world’s biggest human rights event.

Every November and December, Amnesty supporters across the globe will write millions of letters - it could be petitions, emails, Tweets, Facebook posts, photos, postcards for those whose basic human rights are being attacked. This year we’re throwing our might behind the children and young people who are firefighting some of the world’s biggest crises. Many have stepped in where adults have failed to lead and are facing terrible danger as a result. Your words really can change their lives.
