Last year, more than 12,000 people across the United States sent tens of thousands of letters on behalf of people who were living with the daily threat of human rights violations. Those letters worked – nearly half of the individuals featured in last year's Write-a-thon saw marked improvements in their lives. Musaad Abu Fagr, a novelist was held as a prisoner of conscience for three years in Egypt. He was one of the cases featured in the Global Write-a-thon last year and today, he is a free man.

This year during the Global Write-a-thon, we will shine a light on twelve cases. In order to make this the most successful Write-a-thon to date, your participation is crucial as we work towards our goal of 350,000 letters from the U.S. Every letter counts and your words make a difference.
I'm writing to check in and see if you have any questions about the Write-a-thon, and to ensure you have everything you need to participate. Your Field Organizer, Carrie Neff is here as a resource to help you. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any further information or help with your own Write-a-thon. All of the information you'll need for your letter-writing is on our website. We can also provide you with Write-a-thon pens, coasters, or hard copies of the materials.
Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests for materials.
