Event Description

Write for Rights is Amnesty International’s largest annual human rights campaign, held throughout the fall to mark Human Rights Day on December 10th. The best thing about Write for Rights is that it works! Each year, we write letters to support people and help end other abuses, such as individuals who are wrongfully imprisoned for the peaceful expression of their beliefs or identity—people we call prisoners of conscience. This year's ten cases include human rights defenders and individuals at risk.

 Our local Write for Rights for Amnesty International event will take place at the Cedar Rapids Public Library, 450 5th Ave, SE, from 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM, Tuesday, December 9th, 2021. Come at any time to write one or more letters. Sample letters are available to follow or simply copy. Easy and worth while!
