Write For Rights Workshop

Pilots' Row Cafe, Rossville Street, Derry

When we all act together, we are more powerful. That is the driving force behind Write for Rights, Amnesty’s global campaign and the world’s biggest human rights event.

The people you are helping today want to make the word a better place. They are demanding justice, and human rights for all. Many have been imprisoned, disappeared and attacked.

Every year, millions of individuals write letters, sign petitions and organise events. And it works! People are freed, justice is served, and the world becomes a better place. Every action counts, and these people need your help. Act now.

Join our live workshop and make your own contribution to Write For Rights. You will need a pen, some letter writing paper and envelopes.
