    By HyunGu Kang, Amnesty International Canada Youth Leader

    On a sunny Sunday in late September, Amnesty Toronto’s Youth Leadership Council hosted our first public event in Toronto’s popular Kensington Market.

    On the one hand, we were terrified. This was the first time we’d be representing Amnesty to non-members, and we were eager to do a good job. On the other, we were resolved.

    It was one year since 43 students “disappeared” after being taken away by police in Mexico – one year in which authorities did far too little to find the missing students and seemed intent, instead, on a shameful cover-up. We knew this was unacceptable, and we wanted the public to know it, too.

    This fall, Amnesty International is holding a series of roundtables for activists in communities across the country. 

    If you can't join us for a roundtable in your community, please join us for our digital activism roundtable. 

    From 7:00 - 8:30 pm EST, activists across the country will join together to discuss upcoming Amnesty campaigns and their ideas for activism and organizing.

    Please email with any questions or concerns.
