GET INVOLVED

 


Amnesty Brooklyn is a local chapter of Amnesty International USA, based in New York City’s borough of Brooklyn. Local groups like Amnesty Brooklyn 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 Prisoners of Conscience and other individuals at risk, and campaign to stop torture, abolish the death penalty, prevent violence against women and work on other human rights issues, including, but not limited to:

We meet monthly in Crown Heights to discuss local, national and international human rights issues, organize actions and events right here in Brooklyn and lobby for those without a voice. Our activities include public actions, organizing and tabeling events, researching cases and petitioning to help those whose rights have been violated.
