2018 Seattle Write-for-Rights Write-a-thon!

Please join us as we host our annual Write-a-thon. Each year Amnesty International selects cases representative of our years-long work for equality for people everywhere. We join with Amnesty groups the world over, joining a movement of people around the world using the power of collective action—millions of us, each doing a small part—to help people.

People around the world, like you, each write a letter to a government official responsible for the case. These letters pile up in their of offices and can’t be ignored—imagine receiving a million letters! We supplement these letters with e-mail actions, lobbying, media attention and social media to increase the pressure on those of officials. We also write “solidarity” notes to the people we are trying to help, or their families, to give them hope.

Where: Montlake Public Library, 2401 24th Ave East, Seattle.
