Amnesty International

USA | East Bay

Every year, near International Human Rights Day, we hold a "write-a-thon" to generate hundreds of letters of support on behalf of prisoners of conscience and other individuals at risk around the world. This is part of Amnesty International's global Write For Rights (W4R) campaign, started in 2007 by a local chapter in Poland. Read more about Write For Rights on the AI USA website.

We cordially invite you to join us in writing letters and solidarity cards on:

Sunday, December 15 (10:00 am - 3:00 pm)

CUESA Farmers Market @ Jack London Square, Oakland, CA 94607. Palm Plaza area of the square (near Jack's Cabin) at Webster St and Water St.

Here are a map and directions.

Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights.

Our local East Bay chapter of Amnesty International USA (Group 612) meets in Oakland, CA on the last Saturday of the month.

Join us to advance human rights!

We work to protect people where justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied. Amnesty International is the world's largest grassroots human rights organization. We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilize the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world.

Upcoming events

Our local group writes letters, gathers signatures, holds educational events, lobbies our representatives, and works to promote human rights change in our community and around the world.
