What does it mean to be a member of a local group and what do we do?
One of the hallmarks of Amnesty International is the involvement of local groups that meet around the world. Our local AI USA members belong to Group 612 and we meet monthly.
We work on many issues, including writing letters on behalf of Prisoners of Conscience. We have also taken action to help a specific prisoner of conscience over the past several years. Additional activities include participating in World Refugee Day events; a Close Guantanamo demonstration; lobbying for specific legislation that Amnesty International USA supports; and participating in campaigns against police brutality, capital punishment, and gun violence.
We work to support and advocate for 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.
