It is our sincere pleasure to invite you to this year's Northeast Regional Conference. Join us on November 11- 12, 2016, as we stand shoulder to shoulder in the great city of Boston, MA to make a lasting human rights impact. The Northeast Regional Conference brings together hundreds of Amnesty members and other human rights activists from around the country. With our Regional Conference Planning Committee and Regional Office as co-hosts, together we will continue our tradition of engaging in networking opportunities, inspiring plenaries, outstanding keynotes, and hands-on skill-building workshops, as well as shaping the policies of the organization.
Through interactive programs and workshops, exceptional speakers and engaging exhibits, the Regional Conference will facilitate discussions about human rights issues in the United States and around the world and motivate us to take action. As activists, we will be challenged to initiate change within our own communities. This will only happen with you – we need you there!
Online registration for the Northeast Regional Conference will close on Monday, November 7th at 11:59pm EST.
Did you know?
Dating back to the American Revolution and the Boston Tea Party, Boston has long stood as a symbol of independence. Today, Boston is a hub of intellect and culture. As the epicenter of New England, residents take immense pride in Boston’s athletics, art, and higher education. The Northeast remains a shining example of our activists’ commitment to accountability and mobilization. Activists in the Northeast have united, alongside AIUSA, to bring about change both domestically and internationally. In accordance with the region’s historical contribution to independence, activists in the Northeast are doggedly working to advance human rights, and are determined to hold violators accountable.
