Defending the Human Rights of Individuals Around the World
In countries around the world, people's lives are threatened because of who they are or what they believe. Amnesty International puts protecting individuals at risk of human rights violations at the very heart of our work.
Our campaign for Individuals at Risk (IAR) mobilizes ordinary people to provide hope and transform lives through simple powerful action. We help free prisoners of conscience, people imprisoned solely for the peaceful expression of their beliefs or identity. We provide rapid response when detainees are tortured and denied basic rights, when human rights defenders face death threats, when people are discriminated against because they are poor. We act to aid specific individuals at risk and pressure governments to address underlying human rights issues.
Thanks to the actions of Amnesty supporters like you, countless individuals have been freed from unjust prison sentences, saved from torture and protected from death threats. Amnesty's Campaign for Individuals at Risk provides hope and improves lives
