Write for Rights Day!

In honor of International Human Rights Day (December 10), Amnesty International hosts the largest human rights event in the world: Write for Rights Global Write-a-thon. Hundreds of thousands of people write letters, participate in postcard campaigns, and demand that the human rights of individuals around the world are respected, protected, and fulfilled. Last year, the Midwest Coalition for Human Rights hosted an event on the University of Minnesota campus that saw 350 people write over 800 letters. This year, we have coordinated our efforts to present students with letters, postcards, and petition signatures written to local, state, national, and international leaders on topics including human trafficking, LGBT rights, torture, and immigration detention, along with letters provided by Amnesty International on rights of prisoners of conscience.

Come join us in the Willey Hall Atrium from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Friday, December 9, to stand up for human rights!
