Amnesty International is a global movement of ordinary people committed to an extraordinary mission: to build a world in which every person – regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity – enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other internationally recognized human rights standards.
Through dynamic campaigns and long-term casework, Amnesty International members propel key human rights concerns and stories of individuals at risk into the glare of the international media and demand the attention of government officials, corporations, international institutions and policy makers.
Today, Amnesty International unites the voices of more than 7 million supporters, activists, and volunteers from all over the world to achieve our goals. Amnesty International USA is the global organization’s presence in the United States. Please scroll down to see and sign up for upcoming events below.
