Humanist Groups may wish to organize a Write for Rights on Human Rights Day, Dec 10
| Prepare yourself to save a life on December 10th |
We've shown that together we can save lives, and you can once again be a part of our massive, life-saving effort on December 10, as Amnesty International mobilizes its full world-wide membership to take action.
Be a part of Write for Rights 2012 by SIGNING UP NOW.
You can choose to write one or several letters, sign an online petition, or organize a Write for Rights event with your friends, family or colleagues - one of hundreds of events we anticipate across Canada, and one of thousands taking place around the world on International Human Rights Day.
Last year Amnesty International supporters in 80 countries wrote over 1 million letters on International Human Rights Day!
We know that the influence of letters or a huge petition tips the balance and persuades a government leader to do the right thing. We know that our efforts get results.
Will it be YOUR letter that tips the balance and saves a life?
Each letter-writing case featured this year also allows you to write a letter of solidarity and bring hope to people who can feel hopeless.

If you are unable to join us, please consider buying a symbolic Amnesty International Book of Stamps, to fund the work required to bring so many people together on this amazing day. Each Book of Stamps represents the cost of mailing an international letter for each of the 12 individuals or communities we're trying to help this year.
Thanks to people like you, Write for Rights has grown from a tiny seed of an idea to become the world's biggest human rights event.
You can help us achieve an even greater goal: we want the whole world to know that December 10th is International Human Rights Day - a day that everyone takes an action to saves lives and end human rights abuses.
