Are you interested in getting involved in a Amnesty International Chapter near you, or finding out out how to start a student Amnesty International club or join a Virtual Action Team for Human Rights? There are many opportunities to join with others, share ideas for human rights actions and get involved. Chapters and Groups often have one or more “adopted” Individuals at Risk that they advocate for all year. They also work on local, national and international campaigns involving human rights, lobby law-makers, have speakers, use art for advocacy, help refugees, make important connections in their community and host Write for Rights!
