    You can continue to impact human rights long into the future:

    Listen to Hamid Ghassemi-Shall share his own story about how his five-year ordeal in Iranian prison ended after thousands of Amnesty International supporters joined the movement to free him. 

    “With your support, I’ve been reunited with my family. With your support, I don’t have the nightmare of execution anymore. With your support, I got my freedom back. Thanks.” - Hamid Ghassemi-Shall

    Your gift of a lifetime—a gift in your will to Amnesty International—can help save lives, end torture, and free the wrongfully imprisoned now and in the future.
