Amnesty Update 2019

Here is my yearly update on the appeal letters I have produced since joining Amnesty International in 2003.

Letters written: 700 (year end projection)

Years Involved: 17

Average letters per year: 41

Most letters written in one year: 72 (2005)

Countries written to: 140

Replies received: 15

Prisoners released: 98

Other actions taken: 33

Top five countries: Canada 60, USA 28, China 23, Colombia 19, Brazil 17

I created a heat map to track distribution of my letters. Canada and the United States are skewed as in the past I sent copy letters to embassies. I believe it is more effective directing concerns to the national government involved.
