Amnesty International and The Poetry Hour present a national project for young people to explore and express human rights through poetry.

Our termly human rights theme invites personal responses, or solidarity and protest poems for an individual who has had their human rights violated which Amnesty will forward on. The Make a Difference in a Minute challenge is to perform a poem in one minute or less that gets your message heard.
