Take Part in the Movement

When you attend or organize an Amnesty International USA event you are taking a part in a global movement to change the world. Events are a fun way to get involved with Amnesty and meet other individuals who are passionate about human rights. Most events are linked to a specific issue or action, and allow you to support our efforts to end human rights violations whenever and wherever they occur.

There are many different types of Amnesty events going on all across the country, so be sure to check in with your Regional Office and see what your local AI chapter groups are planning near you.


Are you planning a Write 4 Rights letter-writing event? Head over to the main Write for Rights website and submit your event there!
