Amnesty Brooklyn is a volunteer run local Amnesty International group, made up of people like you. Local groups are a powerful way for people from all walks of life to come together to advocate for human rights.

We organize and educate local communities to support the release of individuals at risk and campaign on a plethora of human rights cases that matter to the Brooklyn community. These include putting an end to torture, abolishing the death penalty, preventing violence against women, raising the flag for LGBTQ issues and ending the practice of Deadly Force. Find our more about our actions here.

We are welcoming new faces, seasoned members and anyone in between to join us at a monthly meeting, attend some of our very exciting upcoming events or simply reach out and find how you can take action for human rights in Brooklyn!

Get involved here.
