My Amnesty Story: Telling the Story of Change

    Thursday, July 19, 2018 - 11:40

    As an Amnesty International supporter, every action you take contributes to our human rights work. From writing letters, to joining a local group, to participating in a rally, your work is vital to making the change we want in the world. Our supporters around the world, raising their voices in a cry for justice, make Amnesty International effective.

    Now we want to hear your story! 

    We want to hear your Amnesty story, whether you`re a long-time supporter, a donor, or a first-time activist. 

    What brought you to Amnesty International? What inspires you to stay involved? 

    We`ve seen time and again the difference Amnesty supporters can make and each and every one has a story to tell.
