May 2017 (Amnesty at 56: Telling Our Stories)

February 2, 2018

This unique call let us look back and look forward by telling our stories. It honored Amnesty’s birthday and acknowledged both past accomplishments and highlighted what we hope to achieve in the years ahead. It afforded a space for members and leaders to share personal stories, experiences and inspirations to see where we have come and to re-commit to our future work.
