How to Be a #Write4Rights Social Media Mobilizer
Can writing letters actually change things? We know it can. That’s why we run the biggest human rights event in the world every year.
Write for Rights 2018 is fast approaching – and we’re excited to have you on board. If you haven't already, sign up at www.writeathon.ca >>
Thank you for joining our growing community! We need your help to amp up the volume and get as many people to participate in Write for Rights as we can because more letters mean more power. Social media is a fantastic way to get your message out far and wide.
Here are some ways you can take the lead online:
Let your friends know and encourage them to sign up!
We’re going to have some fresh new content including videos, photos, and infographics. We’ll also be featuring photos and content on our website from people like you!
We even have a special overlay for your profile picture to let people know that you Write for Rights. Add it now! >>

You can also include your favourite Write for Rights video! Check out this one with some writers and storytellers in Toronto talking about the power of words. It features Najwa Zebian, Frizz Kid, Anasimone George, Farzana Doctor, Sahar Jafrani and more!
Words have power! But don't take it from us. We asked Toronto storytellers and writers if they agreed. ✨Write for Rights 2018 ✨ ft. @najwazebian @hanashafi @theanasimone @farzanadoctor + more! #WriteforRights2018 #Write4Rights @amnesty vid: @thejjcollective prod: @AshnaAli_ pic.twitter.com/E4DLfbv7b6
