Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for human rights. We are based on the belief that individuals working together in international solidarity can bring about real change.
At Lancaster University, our aim is to raise awareness of human rights issues amongst the student body through fundraising, lobbying and campaigning action. Previously we have had success by holding stalls in Alex Square, meeting with our local MP, creating a social media storm, devising role-playing scenes, hosting discussions with Amnesty speakers.
Join us and be a part of over 100 groups across the UK, made up of thousands of student activists whose commitment, creativity, enthusiasm and hard work are celebrated internationally. There will be opportunities throughout the year to meet with other student activists, by visiting Amnesty HQ for the annual Student Conference, AGM and Action for Change events.
Current campaigns include: My Body My Rights, Stop Torture, Save the Human Rights Act and Refugees, Migrants and Asylum.
Meetings are held every Tuesday, 6pm in Bowland North Seminar Room 7. Anyone is welcome to attend.
