Right now, all around the world, human rights are under attack.

In 2018, Bernardo Caal Xol was thrown in jail without any evidence for protecting rivers sacred to Guatemalan Indigenous peoples.

A prisoner of conscience, Bernardo’s 12 and 14-year-old daughters have not been able to hug him for the past five years.

In 2021, people will take millions of actions to call for Bernardo’s release, and to challenge injustice in 9 other cases as part of Write for Rights.

Your actions have the power to make a difference.

At 15 years old, Janna Jihad is a world recognised journalist.

Since age 7 she has documented the widespread abuse, racism and discrimination of Palestinians by the Israeli military. Though she shouldn't have to.

We can help protect Palestinian children like Janna from harm. Every year, real change happens because of Write for Rights actions.
