It is our sincere pleasure to invite you to this year’s Western Regional Conference. Join us on Saturday, November 10th, 2018, as we stand shoulder to shoulder in Denver to make a lasting human rights impact. The Western Regional Conference brings together Amnesty members and other human rights activists to continue our tradition of engaging in networking opportunities, inspiring plenaries, and hands-on skill-building workshops, as well as shaping the policies of the organization.

As activists, we will be challenged to initiate change within our own communities. This will only happen with you – we need you there!

Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter at @AMNESTYUSA.
