Write for Rights 2023

Join the campaign and change a life today

Throughout history, protest has been a powerful tool for change, but this precious right is under attack. Many governments around the world are restricting people’s right to protest, because they fear change. They want to maintain the status quo. They want to keep people divided. 

In a world where the opinions of people are often repressed, protecting human rights, land, and the environment becomes more and more dangerous. 

The world needs more people to turn their outrage into action, to invite their friends and family to participate, to get involved, and demand equality and justice from their governments. 

For over 20 years, Amnesty International’s annual Write for Rights campaign has transformed the lives of people whose rights have been wronged. Using the power of their words, Write for Rights supporters have united behind a common purpose: together, we can change lives for the better. 

Take action today and change a life forever. 

From the bottom of my heart, this campaign has kept me alive, it’s what has stopped them from killing me because they know that you are there.
