To take part in Amnesty International's Write for Rights campaign means taking action. In the past twenty years, 127 of the 169 persons imprisoned were freed thanks to letters sent, representing a 75% release rate. Writing can actually change lives. By leveraging the universal symbol of the pencil, the visuals emphasize real situations where the most basic of rights have been violated: the right to protest, the right to live in safety, the freedom of the press, and the right to a fair trial.
