We are Amnesty International UK. We work to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
As a global movement of over ten million people, Amnesty International is the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation.
We investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilise the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We received the Nobel Peace Prize for our life-saving work. Amnesty International UK is a dual entity comprising of two distinct organisations, the Amnesty International UK Section and the Amnesty International UK Charitable Trust.
Over 50 years.
We campaign for justice wherever it has been denied. We protect people, defending their right to freedom, truth and dignity. We do this by investigating and exposing abuses, galvanising our global movement of seven million people and educating future generations so that one day the dream of human rights for all becomes a reality.
What are human rights?
Human rights are the fundamental rights and freedom that belong to every single one of us. The 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights from the foundation of what we do and drive all of our work.
