The 2023 VAC will provide a virtual space for members and activists to connect with one another and to get tools/training that will help them engage in the priority campaigns and advance the programs and organizational goals. As a membership based organization, Amnesty International works to build and uphold partnerships between volunteer leaders and staff. It is through shared leadership that we do our best work.
All members who plan to submit a proposal are encouraged to contact the appropriate staff members and member leaders who work on a region or issue area, if applicable. After the sessions are voted on and approved you will be connected to the relevant staff and member leaders to ensure messaging and information alignment.
