Slamnesty- Amnesty International's Slam Poetry

Date & Time November 18, 2017 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Hotung Cafe
Amnesty International

This is an open mic night for individuals to express their thoughts and emotions surrounding human rights issues through performance (poetry, music, spoken word, etc). The event is part of “Write for Rights,” a global letter-writing campaign organized by the wider Amnesty International. We have chosen to focus on four cases (see attached) in which human rights have been violated. We are hosting this open mic night to encourage people to write/sign letters to authorities, pushing them to make a difference in these cases. 

If you are interested in performing for the event, please email
