Amnesty International is an international grassroots movement. Much of our work is done by our network of volunteer groups. We have groups in communities and churches and on high school and college campuses. There are professional networks of lawyers and educators. We very much hope that you will consider joining one of these groups.

We invite you to contact us if you would like to join their efforts to release prisoners of conscience, to focus on targeted country campaigns, or to work on other human rights issues such as torture, refugees, and the death penalty. Groups are also involved with outreach and media work in their communities, constantly seeking to increase the visibility of Amnesty International's human rights message. If you would like to consider starting a group in your own community, please contact us and we can provide you with all the information you need to do this, as well as connect you with an experienced Amnesty member who can directly assist you. If you are a student and are interested in starting an Amnesty group at your school, or in finding out if there is a group already, please call us and we will provide you with this information as well.

For the purpose of servicing members, Amnesty International USA divides the United States into five regions, each with a Regional Office. Click here to find the Amnesty regional office nearest you. If you are looking to volunteer outside of the US, contact your nearest national section.
