Dear John

December 10, 2009

Not sure what to do for Human Rights Day? If you have some free time, then why not write a letter to your favorite human rights abuser to wish shame upon him or her? To get you started, here are some ideas courtesy of Amnesty International. You can write about a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate who has been in detention for 14 of the last 20 years or a novelist who was given an unfair trial or a trade union activist seeking rights for workers or a health adviser who has been threatened for assisting women who have suffered acts of violence. The list goes on and on.

Please remember to be on your best behavior by keeping the letters civil and respectful. The ultimate goal of these letters is addressing human rights abuses and working together to put an end to them.

Here are a couple of good references to use when writing your letter:
