Amnesty International USA student groups across the country are organizing for human rights. This fall, we are taking this activism to the next level – ActivismX. This campus competition will take place from early September to October 9, with student chapters nationwide developing creative actions for our priority areas of work.
Projects will be focused on one of two human rights issue areas: Refugee & Migrant Rights or End Gun Violence. Throughout September until early October, groups can sign up to join the competition, choose their focus area, and plan a creative, out of the box action on their campus or in their community. With support and resources from Amnesty organizers, groups will carry out their action by October 9. The group which executes the top project in each of Amnesty’s five regions will be invited to join their regional conference to present their action in a workshop on creative activism. Projects will be judged based on creativity, effectiveness, number of actions taken and other factors.
Once signed up, groups will receive Amnesty materials specific to their issue area, one-on-one organizing support, and the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to $250 to support the project.
