ABOUT

We are people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. Our purpose is to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. We are voices for those who have none.

Amnesty International is a worldwide grassroots human rights organization which received Nobel Prize Awards in 1977.

Amnesty International’s uniquely effective approach for protecting human rights uses a three-pronged approach:

How We Work

RESEARCH

 

Our crisis response teams and researchers travel to affected areas around the world to uncover individual human rights abuses and document patterns of abuse.

MOBILIZATION

 

Our campaign teams use this research to educate the public about human rights abuses – and they give members and grassroots activists the information and tools they need to demand that human rights be protected.

ADVOCACY

 

Our staff and volunteer leaders engage in direct advocacy with policymakers at the state and federal levels in the U.S., while we rally grassroots activists from all 50 states to demand that policymakers protect human rights in the U.S. and around the world.

                   United Nations                         
Universal Declaration of Human Rights 

Introduction

In perhaps the most resonant and beautiful words of any international agreement, “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”. The commitments made by all States in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are in themselves a mighty achievement, discrediting the tyranny, discrimination and contempt for human beings that have marked human history.                            (click for more)

Heroes Campaign to End Gun Violence

 

Our focus continues to be on making grassroots calls to all Senators, asking them to support and pass the Break the Cycle of Violence Act. It is critical now for these offices to hear from you, as the budget reconciliation process is underway, and we have a unique opportunity to include the Break the Cycle funding in the budget.

 

Take Action Now:

  • Phone your two Senators to pass the Break the Cycle of Violence Act.

  • If one or both of your Senators has already sponsored the bill, please thank them and encourage them to recruit other Senators to co-sponsor. (See who has cosponsored here)

  • If you have already called both of your Senators, please recruit five other people to call!

  • To really ramp up the pressure, consider calling monthly…or even weekly.
