Tracy's blog

I’m Tracy Au and I have graduated from the Professional Writing program from university. I am an aspiring screenwriter, so this blog is used to promote my writing and attract people who will hire me to write for your TV show or movie. I write a lot about writing, TV, movies, jokes, and my daily life and opinions. I have another blog promoting my TV project at www.thevertexfighter.blogspot.com.

It's Human Rights Day - Catch the wave!

Catch the Wave!

Dear Tracy,

A wave of human rights activism is spreading across the globe today on International Human Rights Day. Photos and letter-writing totals from the nearly 1,600 individual and group events across Canada are already coming in!

Today, the 67th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, here's how you can get yourself inspired and make your own ripples to bring hope and justice to people whose rights need protecting. 


10 Ways YOU can change a life on December 10!


1. See what it's all about in 60 seconds


Watch “Write like someone’s life depends on it”, a one minute video narrated by television host George Stroumbouloupolous.

>> Watch the video



2. Write a letter


This is what it’s all about. People are writing letters in more than 80 countries, at big and small letter-writing marathons around the world. Write for Yecenia Armenta, who was raped and tortured in Mexico. Write for Albert Woodfox who has spent 40 years in solitary confinement in the US.

>> Choose a letter-writing action



3. Find an event in your community

There are more than 100 public Write for Rights events from coast to coast to coast today and into the weekend.

>> Find an event near you



4. Make your own waves with our e-petitions
Every action featured in Write for Rights includes an electronic version that gets sent directly to someone in a position to stop a human rights violation, and includes buttons to help you share.

>> Sign and share our e-actions



5. Create a Write for Rights profile pic!


This fun tool allows you to put a Write for Rights wrapper around your Facebook and Twitter profile pics. 

>> Promote Write for Rights with your profile pic!



6. Help #Write4Rights “trend” on Human Rights Day


Everyone in the world has an interest in the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They protect our rights, and they set the standard of human right protection that every person deserves. December 10th, International Human Rights Day exists to remind us of that.

>> Be a social media mobilizer for human rights!
 

7. Join our Twitter party!
Waves happen on Twitter when stories “trend”. Help us displace scandals, cat photos and celebrity food pics with #Write4Rights talk! Join the party from 7-8pm EST.

>> RSVP for our Twitter party!



8. Follow the wave around the world


Watch our global action counter rise as activists in 80 countries report back. Follow events in Amnistie CanadaUSA, Australia, France, the UK and more!

>> Watch our global counter rise at writeathon.ca



9. Know that your action can change lives

We know you can help save someone’s life, set them free from wrongful imprisonment or bring justice where it has been denied. We've seen the power of millions of voices speaking together. Just yesterday Leyla Yunus was released after intense campaiging by Amnesty supporters!

10. Help us “fight the bad guys” 365 days a year


When the wave subsides, the work must go on. You can support Amnesty International’s respected, persistent and Nobel-prize winning human rights as a sustaining support or by making a special gift right now towards our Stop Torture campaign – any gifts made by December 31st will be doubled, thanks to a generous donor.

>> Join Amnesty!


No matter how you spend today, follow and share Write for Rights news all day long at writeathon.ca and on Facebook and Twitter!


THANK for helping to create a tidal wave of momentum for human rights on International Human Rights Day! 

Alex Neve,
Secretary General
Amnesty International Canada
