Built by Volunteers

From speaking at rallies to producing films, Amnesty volunteers communicate the core values of human rights. Recently, the UG Communications Design Students at the Pratt Institute created an innovative graphic design concept that reflects Amnesty's core values and practices, such as initiative, respect and teamwork. The resulting work illustrates the impact that students’ and others can have on the human rights movement by donating their time and talents. We hope to continue collaborating with such talented students as those at the Pratt Institute.
