JOHN LEGEND JOINS AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL'S 2014 WRITE FOR RIGHTS CAMPAIGN

Dear Friends, and supporters,

We have some exciting news to share. For Amnesty International's 2014 Write for Rights Campaign, we have teamed up with nine-time Grammy award winner, singer and songwriter John Legend to release a promotional video to highlight two of our cases on Gun Violence and Police Brutality in Ferguson, Rio de Janeiro, and Hong Kong. Today we are releasing the Video in the US, and next week it will go live in 182 Countries. 

This has been a collaborative project across the organization -- a project that combines Amnesty’s signature campaign and most traditional form of activism with fresh voices and innovative tools. I also would like to thank Dream Hampton for Co-Directing this piece with me and traveling with me to London. Video can be seen here: http://amnestyusa.org/johnlegendYT60

With hope for Justice,

Marvin
