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)

Global: Amnesty International launches new campaign on abortion rights

Amnesty International is launching a new campaign calling on people the world over to help make public support for abortion rights visible to all. 

Over the past 30 years, huge strides have been taken in the fight for the right to abortion, with laws changing for the better in more than 60 countries. However, there is still much to be achieved, while progress remains under threat. 

From Argentina and Benin to Ireland and France, visionary human rights defenders have secured major advances in the formal recognition of abortion rights. The anti-Taliban women’s protests in Afghanistan, the #MahsaAmini protests in Iran and the #GreenWave protests in Latin America are evidence too of extraordinary activist courage in claiming sexual and reproductive rights.

Today, however, the world is also witnessing mounting efforts to stymie that progress, to undo hard won gains and advance instead policies and laws that will deny millions of their sexual and reproductive rights.  

Amnesty International’s ‘1000 Ways to Support Abortion Rights’ campaign, which launches today across the organization’s social media channels, offers engaging and influential ways for all to get onboard with efforts around the globe to resist rights erosion and protect the right to abortion.

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.
