Amnesty International USA: TAKE ACTION NOW!
They were kidnapped by repressive regimes and imprisoned in secret without charge or trial. Supporters like you made their freedom possible. Listen to their stories and then make a tax-deductible gift to help free others like them.
Give hope for freedom – donate to Amnesty today!
Dear Richard,

More than 10,000 Amnesty supporters will join together next week and put pen to paper in defense of human rights.

It’s Amnesty’s 8th annual Global Write-a-thon. With nearly 300,000 letters pledged in the United States alone, it’s our biggest Write-a-thon ever.

Together, we’ll call for the release of 10 people under threat worldwide, including:

  • Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Prize laureate and pro-democracy leader locked away for most of the last two decades for challenging Myanmar’s military dictatorship
  • Shi Tao, a Chinese poet and essayist sentenced to 10 years’ hard labor under harsh conditions for sending an email
  • Mansour Ossanlu, an Iranian trade unionist jailed – despite his ailing health – after standing up for workers’ rights

These cases represent just a few of the thousands of people who we’re fighting to free right now.

Your donations help make their release possible.
You can provide hope for freedom. Thanks to your letters, more than 44,000 people have been freed from prison, saved from torture and protected from death threats.

Watch a brief video about three people freed thanks to your letters.

They were kidnapped by repressive regimes and imprisoned in secret without charge or trial.

They saw friends and colleagues tortured, sometimes worse.

Cut off from the outside world, they feared they’d been forgotten.

And one day, they saw a shining ray of hope. Someone smuggled in a message: Amnesty International was fighting for their release.

Donations from supporters like you made their freedom possible. Listen to their stories and then make a tax-deductible gift to help free others like them.

This isn’t just their story. It’s the story of people all over the world who need your help right now.

Sincerely,

Larry Cox

P.S. – More than 4/5 of Amnesty International’s life-saving human rights work is supported by individual contributions from people like you. Help us keep the broad base of support we need to maintain our independence from corporate and government interests. Make a gift today.
