Who Says ‘Write a letter, change a life…’?

Amnesty International’s Write for Rights campaign transforms the lives of people whose rights have been wronged. In recent years, we have seen real change to people’s lives because of action by Write for Rights supporters. From Zimbabwe to Guatemala, activists have been released and justice delivered.

This year’s campaign features people from around the world, all connected because their human rights have been violated. Some by their governments, others by the police, or by big corporations. All because of who they are and what they do.

The Maidstone, Medway and Swale Amnesty International Group had a stand at the Christmas Fayre. This was at Aylesford Priory on 2 December. Visitors signed 63 greetings cards with messages to the people featured in this year’s campaign. Three Medway and Maidstone Soroptimist members, Nellie Adjaye, Carol McKeough and Wanda Wright volunteered on the stall that day.

In the Amnesty International December Newsletter it said, ‘Thanks, as always, to the local Soroptimists club for their help with this.’

A further 18 greetings cards were signed by Soroptimist members during our December Club meeting and will be sent off.

Together, we can fight for their rights.
