How to Be a #Write4Rights Social Media Mobilizer

Can writing letters actually change things? We know it can. That’s why we run the biggest human rights event in the world every year. 

Write for Rights 2021 is fast approaching – and we’re excited to have you on board. If you haven’t already, sign up at >> 

Thank you for joining our growing community! We need your help to amp up the volume and get as many people to participate in Write for Rights as we can because more letters mean more power. Social media is a fantastic way to get your message out far and wide.

Here are some ways you can take the lead online:

Let your friends know and encourage them to sign up!

Like and share the Write for Rights content we’ll be posting on the Amnesty Canada Facebook page and Twitter feed or post your own message using #Write4Rights and #W4R21. 

We’ll be featuring photos and content on our website from people like you!

Make your #W4R21 Event a Social Media Party

Social media is a key tool to promoting and amping up excitement for your Write for Rights event, especially during COVID-19. We can help! Reach out at 

Take Photos 

While there won’t be lots of in-person events this year, we can still take photos! If you host an online letter-writing party, ask the group whether you can take a screenshot to share to social media (make sure to block out people’s screennames if they don’t want them online). You can take selfies with the letters you’ve written, pictures of the locations you’re writing from and even the letters themselves!

Hashtag your posts with #Write4Rights and #W4R21.

Connect with Others 

No matter what time your event is, post a message to Twitter, Instagram, or the Facebook Event page.

You can also join our virtual national marathon on December 10th! Drop in at any point to take action with people across the country.
