We work to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied.
Amnesty International is a global movement of millions of people demanding human rights for all people – no matter who they are or where they are. We are the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization.

People in detention are at heightened risk of contracting and becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. They must not be treated as an afterthought. Many have long-standing ties to family, faith and other communities in the U.S. who could safely house them if they were released.
Urgent Action Network
The concept is simple: Take Action, Change a Life.
Urgent Actions ask our community of volunteers to flood the mailboxes, inboxes, phones and social media of authorities when someone is in imminent danger of human rights violations. Your letters, emails, phone calls, faxes and Tweets have helped to halt executions, support human rights defenders and free prisoners of conscience—people jailed solely for the peaceful expression of their beliefs and identity.
