On this page you’ll find all the resources you need to take part in the 2022 Write for Rights (‘W4R’) campaign, our global letter-writing marathon.
You’re here because you want to make a difference to the lives of the many people worldwide who are under threat for championing what’s right. Whether you do this with a group of friends, classmates, your family or by yourself, the words you write will change lives.
Take action by signing petitions, writing letters to authorities, sending messages of support, attending a Write for Rights event or organising your own event! Check out the W4R Activist Toolkit to find events near you and register your own event. The toolkit also contains useful tips and tricks for making the most of this year’s Write for Rights.

Complete the form below to order the W4R 2022 School Pack* for your class. This is a physical pack which contains one generic and one case-specific human rights education (HRE) activity (see HRE activities listed above) and hand out materials, making fighting for the rights of others easy and real. The pack also includes an Amnesty folder, poster, pens, stickers and a reply paid envelope to send back the letters and solidarity messages participants will write, so we can forward them to the targets, include them in the handovers in February 2023 and keep you up-to-date on the impact of your actions!
