Write for Rights: drinks and letter writing

Come help us champion human rights by attending one of our letter writing evenings! We write some letters, discuss human rights, and meet new people over a couple of beers. 

This is a free and open evening. Come by just to say hello, or get more involved by writing a letter. We provide writing materials, and additional research on current petitions and letter writing campaigns hosted and supported by Amnesty International. 

We book a table at the venue, so please keep your RSVP up to date and let us know if you can't make it!

From the very beginning of Amnesty International in 1961, people have written letters on behalf of victims of human rights abuses. Today, hundreds of thousands of ordinary people throughout the world challenge cruelty and injustice by taking a few minutes to write a letter. So, join us for a seriously chilled out evening of letter writing here in Amsterdam!

Why do it? To catch up on human rights issues over some food and beers. To take a stance and sign one of our petitions against human rights violations around the world, or have your say and write a letter expressing how you feel.

    Hi everyone - once again I have to bail - I have a terrible sore throat that doesn't seem to be getting any better. Disappointed I can't be there, but hopefully next time! I hope you all have a great and productive night.
