On behalf of Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) and our more than two million members and supporters across the country, we submitted the following appropriations requests for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) to Congress today.

As Congress debates funding priorities in the coming months, we urge that the U.S.’ contributions to global efforts ensure human rights are upheld, preserved, and protected. We request that the budgets for the Department of State (DOS) and the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) topline accounts be robustly funded to support human rights functions.
