    The final numbers are in...

    If you participated in Write for Rights 2018 in December, your messages are among 54,928 from Canada that fed into an international total of 5,796,150.

    That’s slightly above the 2017 total of 5,500,560.

    Since Amnesty Poland launched this signature Amnesty event in 2002, the pressure on governments to respect human rights, at least in numbers, has grown every single year.

    The Write for Rights team at our international office says “Thanks to everyone for demonstrating once again all that we can achieve when we work together. Let's continue to celebrate the Woman Human Rights Defenders around the world who, despite the cost, keep on fighting.”
