Amnesty International


Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights.  It unites people from all over the world to fight for human rights using the signature tactics of Research, Action, and Advocacy:

“Amnesty International keeps vigilant watch on the rights of people around the world and publishes hundreds of independent reports based on … rigorous research, free of corporate and government influence.  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 [so as] demand the attention of government officials, corporations, international institutions and policy makers.  [Amnesty International combines] high-level legislative work, media outreach and grassroots mobilization to shape and promote legislation and policies to advance human rights, protect individuals and free prisoners of conscience.”
