Why become an Amnesty International Fieldworker? Have you been involved with Amnesty for 6 months or more? Are you looking for ways to promote human rights work in your community beyond signing petitions and writing letters? Are you looking for a new challenge? Join us!
My name is Tosha Mallette and I am an Amnesty member at my local group in Vernon, B.C, as well as the Co-Chair of the Fieldworker Coordinating Committee. I really enjoy documentaries and learning about the world and the issues we face. Learning about a problem is always the first step I take in my activism, but I also recognize that it’s also important to take action on what I’ve learned. This approach of education informing action is what brought me to Amnesty International and to the Fieldworker Program.
