Join us at the 2nd annual Write for Rights Marathon (W4R) on the 15th of December 2019, from 12pm-5pm, at the Multicultural Hub in Melbourne!
Tickets are free: https://w4rmarathon19.eventbrite.com.au/
Write for Rights is a human rights campaign run by Amnesty International. Each year, Amnesty identifies people and communities at risk of human rights abuses worldwide. At this event, we ask people to sign petitions, write letters to authorities, and send messages of support. Our goal is to bring 100 activists together and take over 1,000 actions!
This year we’re throwing our might behind the children and young people who are firefighting some of the world’s biggest crises. Many have stepped in where adults have failed to lead, and are facing terrible danger as a result.
Throughout the day, several speakers will provide information about human rights issues in the countries of the 10 W4R cases. This will culminate in a panel discussion about ‘Human Rights and Youth Activism’.
Write a letter, change a life!
