Angie Hougas


Angie remembers a petition action Amnesty International had during the first Gulf War. It was titled, “What About the People.” It is that fundamental basis that keeps her involved in human rights work.

Angie has a broad understanding of Amnesty International that comes from being a long-time member, and serving in many volunteer leadership positions at all levels of the organization. One of those volunteer positions is uniting music and human rights. She does this by organizing an Amnesty presence at live performances and during concert tours.

Other volunteer experiences in her background are, currently she volunteers at my local humane society. In the past she has worked with the local Restorative Justice Program and the Community Adolescence Program (CAP).

Her career field is with a large law office in downtown Madison, WI.
