Human rights movement Amnesty International USA is teaming up with Sofar Sounds to host a Write for Rights event in New York City. Lauren Jauregui will be taking the stage to perform an acoustic set.

The powerful night will be a collective action which aims to secure justice for 11 female human rights defenders under threat as a result of speaking out against various abuses. Write for Rights will begin with a letter-writing session, where attendee can write to government officials.

“At a time in our collective history when the importance of using our voices to affect change  can’t be overstated, I’m really excited to partner with Amnesty International for an event that’s encouraging people of all ages the world over to speak up against human rights abuses”, Jauregui said about being part of the event.  “The 11 incredible women across the globe that we’re advocating for have spoken up and acted out on behalf of some of the most pressing issues of our time, and I want to encourage everyone to do their part as well.”

The event will take place on Dec. 8 in a secret everyday location revealed to attendees days before. For more info, check out the Tumblr page here.
