Human Rights Education Toolkits
These resources will help your students understand that they are part of a massive global movement of people advocating for human rights. They are designed to empower students to develop human rights skills, sharpen their critical thinking, and advocate for issues that interest them.
Write for Rights Cases for Young People
We’ve created 4 case sheets for you to use with young people in your life, whether it’s at home or in a classroom.
Letters to a Prisoner
Letters to a Prisoner (Owlkids 2017) is a wordless children’s book inspired by the Write for Rights campaign – created by Montreal author Jacques Goldstyn. The book illustrates the power of hope and the written word. The Youth and Activism Team has been actively collaborating in partnership with Owlkids Books to make this book available to the Amnesty Canada community.
Letters to a Prisoner will provide a fun and engaging way for young people (ages 6 and up) to participate with and promote human rights and the Write for Rights campaign.
To accompany the content of the book, Amnesty Canada has created Letters to a Prisoner: A Social Justice Toolkit for Communities & Schools. This educational toolkit includes discussion questions and activities that you can initiate in your group setting in sessions ranging from 30 minutes to 1 hour. It also includes resources framed around a case featured in the 2023 Write for Rights campaign.
