The pen is mightier than the sword!

Written on December 20th, 2013

To mark International Human Rights Day, Writer’s Craft students at Woodland Christian High School participated in Amnesty International’s ‘Write for Rights’ event. In total, students wrote 28 handwritten letters to government officials, urging them to respond to specific human rights concerns.

According to Amnesty, just one handwritten letter has the same impact as 200 emails.
