Have Your Students Write for Rights with Amnesty International

Amnesty International USA is offering a special opportunity for social studies educators in Washington to participate in their annual human rights project called Write for Rights. Amnesty International is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning, nonpartisan human rights organization, and Write for Rights is their global letter-writing project.

They have created an Educator’s Guide that focuses on five specific and diverse cases of human rights abuses around the world, including a student leader imprisoned in Myanmar, girls forced into marriage in Burkina Faso, and Albert Woodfox, who has been subjected to solitary confinement for over 40 years in Louisiana.
