Amnesty International UBC

Become part of our vibrant community.


Amnesty International is a global movement of over 7 million people in more than 150 countries working together to protect and promote human rights.

Amnesty International is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion. We do not accept funding for our human rights research and campaigning work from any government. Our work is supported by donations from individuals.

Amnesty International is impartial. We hold all actors to the same obligations as defined in international human rights law and standards. Our only goal is to ensure human rights are respected for everyone, everywhere.









Only when the last prisoner of conscience has been freed, when the last torture chamber has been closed, when the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights is a reality for the worlds people, will our work be done.

Peter Benenson  Founder of Amnesty International
