Human Rights Day Program

December 3, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

A look at Human Rights Day & Write for Rights

Event Details:

Join us at the GL-UNA Human Rights Day Event where you’ll have the chance to connect with MSU Humphrey Fellows. At least three MSU Humphrey Fellows will discuss human rights as it relates to their countries – Burundi, Guyana, and Pakistan. Also, the United Nations response to the crisis in the middle east will be discussed.

Other Fellows from around the world will join us to chat with attendees after the program. Refreshments will be served.

The program will also include a Write For Rights writing campaign! You’ll have the opportunity to support people around the world who’ve been unjustly persecuted or imprisoned. People like Ahmed Mansoor, who has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for voicing concerns about the detention, torture, and unfair trials of dissenting voices in the UAE.

Write a letter, change a life

Write for Rights mobilizes hundreds of thousands globally each December around Human Rights Day. This year’s campaign unites individuals whose human rights have been violated by governments, police, or corporations. Over 61 years, Amnesty International’s activism through letters and online actions has liberated many, offering hope to former prisoners of conscience, human rights defenders, torture survivors, and influencing decision makers to reconsider, ultimately changing lives.
