As the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization, with seven million members spanning more than 150 countries and territories globally, it works to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied.
Amnesty is a democratically governed, grassroots membership organization, which means that the members vote on key policy issues and elect the Board of Directors.
Amnesty International has a uniquely effective strategy for protecting human rights that uses a three-pronged approach:
- It conducts research to uncover human rights abuses and document patterns;
- it uses this research to educate the public and equip activists to demand change; and
- it mobilizes grassroots activists to advocate for human rights in the U.S. and around the world.
As the largest country section of Amnesty International, with 221,214 supporters, Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) is part of a global movement of millions dedicated to pushing back against injustice to make the change that we all deserve to see – now and in the future.
