Queen’s Amnesty International is a human rights group at Queen’s University. We are one of many small chapters that work on behalf of Amnesty International, a global movement of people campaigning to promote and protect human rights around the world. Amnesty International is independent of any government, political ideology, or economic interest. Our vision is a world in which human rights are respected for everyone, everywhere.
Our club advocates for the freedom of prisoners of conscience, speaks out against human rights abuses, and aims to provide and encourage safe, supportive, and stimulating discussion and debate of contemporary world issues within the realm of human rights. We write letters to government officials, hold petition signings, and organize events to raise awareness of human rights issues as interest prevails. As a club, we are also always interested in partnering with other social issue clubs on campus!
