Our Mandate

-- Created by and for youth --

The Matchstick is Amnesty Canada’s Arts & Lit magazine.


The Matchstick aims to raise awareness of human rights issues through the creative imagination of young activists across the world.


As an extension of Amnesty Canada’s existing initiatives and work, we work in tandem with other Amnesty workers and volunteers to promote Amnesty’s core issues and initiatives.


We offer you The Matchstick as an expression of youth human rights advocacy and a creative archive of global solidarity.
