Amnesty Internation USA Regional Activism Conference 2024 logo

Amnesty International USA is excited to announce that our Regional Activism Conference 2024 (RAC’24) will be held in-person only in three regions. Governance sessions will be online as well as in-person.

This year’s events will provide a space for people to come together to increase knowledge, build skills, and exchange ideas and strategies for progressing a human rights agenda! All conferences will be held in-person only with the exception of Governance sessions, which will also be held online. 

The Regional Activism Conferences will each offer sessions covering an array of human rights issues, such as Ending Racial Discrimination & Ensuring Equality and Equity, Reproductive Rights, Refugee and Migrant Rights, Ending Gun Violence and more. Please check back later for a complete agenda of sessions offered.

Check out your region to submit a workshop proposal, register, and more.
