Our local East Bay chapter of Amnesty International USA meets in Oakland, CA the last Saturday of the month. Join us to advance human rights! See our "Meetings" tab for more information!
We work to protect people where justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied. Amnesty International is the world's largest grassroots human rights organization. We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilize the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world.
Our local group writes letters, gathers signatures, holds educational events, lobbies our representatives, and works to promote human rights change in our community and around the world.
