Amnesty International is a Nobel Peace-Prize winning grassroots activist organization that has played a vital role in virtually every major advance in the field of human rights for more than fifty years. Whether it’s establishing a global norm against torture, creating the International Criminal Court, strengthening public opposition to the death penalty, enacting groundbreaking treaties to prohibit illicit arms sales and use of child soldiers, or working to end violence against women, Amnesty’s contributions and leadership have been indispensable to human rights progress.
Every day around the world, someone is directly impacted by our work. The accused are given a fair trial; prisoners are saved from execution; detainees are no longer tortured. Wherever repressive governments or others commit crimes against humanity, we seek and expose the truth and demand justice.
This vibrant, global movement of more than three million members and supporters in more than 150 countries and territories works every day to defend universal human rights.
Through a combination of signature tactics—groundbreaking research, high-level advocacy and media work, movement-building activities, grassroots campaigning and collective citizen action—Amnesty International saves lives, shapes policy, and campaigns for laws to strengthen human rights protections. We do so impartially and independently, with no political, religious, or economic affiliation.
