Amnesty International is a worldwide grassroots movement that promotes and defends human rights.
It works independently of all government and political ideologies to secure the release of prisoners of conscience, ensure the fulfillment of peoples' social, economic, environmental and cultural rights, and end torture, political killings and disappearances.
Amnesty International at BU hosts weekly meetings to discuss topics that are important to current members and we also take action through signing petitions and writing letters. Additionally, a couple times during the semesters we have events. Some past events
include a speaker panel on the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China, AmnesTEA (a letter writing and tea drinking event), Jamnesty (music and human rights - what could be better?), a lecture panel on Bradley Manning, a death penalty speaker panel,
and many, many more. We also collaborate with other Amnesty chapters at universities near by and interested individuals in the Boston community. Everyone is welcome!
So come with a pen and your ideas- we're more than open to anyone bringing human or civil rights issues they are passionate about or concerned with to our meetings. If you haven't been to a meeting yet, don't be shy! Please stop by. If you can't make the meetings, look out for more information about our events.
