Discussion with Human Rights Defenders from Across the Globe!

Given the present moment with the global health pandemic, Amnesty International’s signature member-led event, Get-on-the Bus, which was founded and continues to be organized by AI Local Group 133 from Somerville, Massachusetts more than 25 years ago will take place in a virtual space.

While we missed seeing you in NYC for our previously planned in-person event, we are grateful to be able to once again harness the power of Amnesty members and allies to shine a light on human rights abuses and illuminate the path to a better world.  The paramount importance of activism, common purpose, and dedication to human rights and equity are even clearer during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2020 GOTB Actions and Speakers can be found here! Register here (free).  Once you are registered, we will send you details for how to participate in the livestream discussion.

We will have a musical performance by Amnesty activist Nazia Shaheed.
