    Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - 11:46

    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 2019 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!

    Like and share the Write for Rights content we’ll be posting on the Amnesty Canada Facebook page and Twitter feed OR post your own message using #Write4Rights and #W4R2019. 

    We’ll be featuring photos and content on our website from people like you!
