Amnesty International’s letter-writing marathons free people. But writing also opens the door to change. It allows us to put pressure on governments in power and come to the aid of people faced with deportation, the death penalty, and other human rights violations. That’s why this year we wanted to shed light on the power of this small, simple gesture that has such a big impact. The concept was applied to several visuals that were published in response to news events and specific political issue.
