Who are Amnesty International UK?

We are Amnesty International UK.  We work to protect men, women and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.  

As a global movement of over seven million people, Amnesty International is the world's largest grassroots human rights organisation.  We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilise the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. 

Over 50 years in existence and a Nobel Peace Prize later, we continue to campaign for justice where ever it has been denied.  We protect people, defending their right to freedom, to truth, and to dignity.  We do this by investigating and exposing abuses where they happen.  By galvanising our supporters across the world to intervene where individuals are at risk and by educating future generations so that one day the dream of human rights for all becomes a reality.   

What Amnesty International UK does:

  • Unite people on key human rights issues, forcing them into the glare of the international media and demanding the attention of government officials, corporations and international institutions.

  • Expose human rights abuses and identify resolutions through independent reporting.

  • Educate people around the world on human rights, helping themt o defend theirs and others. 

  • Lobby governments to legislate and introduce policies that advance human rights and protect individuals across the globe

  • Train local activists, defending human rights on the ground, enabling them to carry out their work more effectively.
