Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 10 million people who take injustice personally and campaign for a world where all enjoy human rights. The organization is by its members, independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. No government is beyond scrutiny. No situation is beyond hope.
Amnesty International investigates and exposes the facts whenever and wherever abuses happen. The organization lobbies governments and other influential groups such as companies. Making sure they keep their promises and respect international law.
By telling the powerful stories of the people they work with; the organization mobilizes millions of supporters worldwide to campaign for change and to defend activists on the frontline. Ultimately Amnesty International supports people to claim their rights through education and training.
