What is Write for Rights?

Write for Rights is a 24-hour letter-writing marathon where we stay overnight at school to write letters to various governments around the world regarding current Human Rights crises. We at Voices for Refugees, Amala, and Traffick Light create case studies on different Human Rights abuses all around the world, and use those case studies to take real action against those violating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Get Involved!

Students

Students can participate in the event at home, during breaks or during frees. During the school day, HS students will have access to the Pablo Neruda and Emily Dickinson rooms on the 2nd floor of the library during the school day, to write and submit letters.

Staff

Staff can also participate and write letters in their own time. However, teachers also have the opportunity to dedicate class time to writing letters, if they wish! HS Teachers and MS Teachers can then log the number of letters they have written on the linked spreadsheets.

Parents

Parents can also participate by writing letters at home and submitting them! Parents can submit them in one of two ways- by sending a photocopy of the letter to eastvoicesforrefugees@gapps. uwcsea.edu.sg, or ask their child to drop it off when they are at school.
