Write For Rights Marathon Monday: Celebrate Human Rights Day at Portsmouth Book and Bar

Got 5 minutes or more? Drop in and do something positive for Human Rights Day! Your letter could save a life!

Write For Rights is Amnesty International’s largest annual human rights campaign. People like you around the world write letters on behalf of people who need urgent help. Through the power of collective action, these letters convince government officials to free people unjustly imprisoned, stop torture and end other abuses. This year’s 11 cases are women human rights defenders under threat.

Write4Rights Works! “International support is the most powerful tool that women like me can get. Every single signature for the petition to get me free, made a difference. Now I’m free. I’m no fairy tale, I am a true story.” -Teodora Vasquez, Write for Rights 2016.
