John Legend: "I Write Because..."

Award-winning singer/songwriter John Legend has joined Amnesty International USA as part of its annual Write for Rights campaign.

Planned every year around Human Rights Day, December 10, the letters and messages generated by the campaign have had an enormous impact. Last year alone, over 2 million actions were taken on behalf of 10 individuals and cases.

This year's Write for Rights cases include Chelsea Manning, victims of gun violence in the USA and Brazil, and women and girls of El Salvador impacted by the country's abortion ban. Write for Rights participants can write directly to these individuals to offer encouragement and support.
