> Report your letters here

Every year around International Human Rights Day on December 10th, hundreds of thousands of people around the world send a letter or an e-mail on behalf of someone they’ve never met. 

Write for Rights looked a little different this year with COVID-19 restrictions, but the impact of your action was just as powerful. Your voice is essential to ensure that our support is felt more than ever in these difficult times.

Take action all year with Amnesty International >>>

Thank you very much each and every one of you. Not just for campaigning for my release, and the release of other prisoners, but for helping to keep our hope and our beliefs alive.


When I [received] all these letters saying that I’m not alone, it [made] me feel great. And I think, yes, it’s true, I’m not alone. They really are supporting me.
