Inviting activists and supporters to come together to celebrate the 20th birthday of Write for Rights, Amnesty’s annual global letter-writing marathon since 2001.
Join us at the Griffith Uni South Bank campus for a celebration with a women’s rights focus – sharing stories of Write for Rights over the years, learning about two cases for young women in the current 2021 campaign, Rung Panusaya from Thailand and Ciham Ali from Eritrea and sharing ideas for holding your own Write for Rights events.
We will start with an informal catch-up to reconnect after a while of not being able to meet up face-to-face, followed by speakers including Sam Klintworth, National Director of Amnesty International Australia.
We are privileged to welcome Brisbane-based contemporary musician Arig to speak and perform from her work. Arig came to Australia fleeing Eritrea as a young child with her mother and has made a name for herself on Triple J Unearthed, in Brisbane’s live music scene including performing at Women Out Front and has released her own hip hop, roots and pop songs.
Meet other activists and members of the regional Activism Leadership Committee (ALC), share a light supper and cake and enjoy the city view from the balcony.
