Social media action

7 December 2016, 14:19 UTC |

Write for Rights is one of the world’s largest human rights events and on Human Rights Day we want the world to see how far and wide the campaign reaches, and all the great work we do to change lives.

On 10 December we will be using Twitter and Instagram to show that people all over the world are writing letters.

You can do this in three easy steps:

1. Take a photo of letters

Please take photos of letters and encourage activists to take photos of their letters – it can be lots of letters, one whole letter, or you can highlight one powerful sentence, or a drawing, or anything that shows it is personal.

2. Upload to Twitter or Instagram 

Upload the photo onto Twitter or/and Instagram. The letter can be in any language and you can also post on behalf of activists using your own, or your Section’s social media accounts.

3. Tag your post to make it count! #W4R16
