Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of "ordinary" people who work together to achieve extraordinary results.
Each day we stand in solidarity with - and help protect - individuals and communities around the world whose human rights are under attack.
We appeal for the violations to stop. We mobilize public pressure to prevent human rights abuses from taking place. And we support Amnesty's campaigns through our financial contributions.
Amnesty members come from many different cultures and backgrounds. What unites us is our determination to build a world where all people live in dignity, security and freedom.
We are building a world in which every person enjoys the rights included in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.
