Write for Rights

The Tanner Center for Human Rights is the sponsoring unit for Amnesty International's (AI) University of Utah Chapter.

  • Each December, the Center teams with the University of Utah's AI Chapter and together we bring the world largest human rights letter writing campaign, Write for Rights, to the University campus. You'll see us at different locations on campus for three days of human rights advocacy. We bring all materials needed for students, faculty and staff to join in writing letters to government officials around the world on behalf of people who need help urgently.   
  • In January, the Center's outreach program, offers  local high school teachers and their students an opportunity to take part in the Write for Rights campaign. In these classroom sessions, students learn about the positive impact they have when they choose to stand up and advocate for people who are experiencing human rights abuses. Using the featured Amnesty International cases, the students learn a new writing skill while gaining an appreciation for activism.

Contact our staff to schedule your own Write for Rights table event.
