We are a global movement of more than 13 million people who take injustice in the world personally. Together we are changing the world so that everyone can enjoy their rights.
We want a world free from discrimination, where during armed conflicts people are protected and those guilty of human rights violations are judged.
Our work is guided by the universality and indivisibility of human rights, impartiality and independence, international solidarity and effective action on behalf of specific people whose rights have been violated.
Through effective research, advocacy, campaigns, actions and education, we bring torturers to justice, change oppressive laws and free people imprisoned for expressing their opinions.
Amnesty International investigates, documents and publishes reports on human rights violations around the world, but here our work is just beginning. We take practical and effective action to stop violations and help victims.
