On the way to the March for Our Lives protest, I met some very impressive young adults in their senior year. Kristen and Olivia.  Volunteers for Amnesty International, an organization, a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally.  We had a great and enjoyable conversation.  One is planning to go into accounting, the other in International Relations and possibly politics.

I see a hope in this generation.

WHAT DOES AMNESTY DO?

They investigate and expose the facts, whenever and wherever abuses happen. 

We lobby governments, and other powerful groups such as companies. Making sure they keep their promises and respect international law.

By telling the powerful stories of the people we work with, we mobilize millions of supporters around the world to campaign for change and to stand in defense of activists on the frontline.

We support people to claim their rights through education and training.
