Welcome to Bristol Uni's Amnesty group!
Amnesty is the world's largest grass-roots human rights group, running campaigns across the globe to ensure every person's human rights are upheld. We aim to help protect those who face injustice and danger as their human rights are denied, ignored or abused.
Here at Bristol we're focused on carrying out campaigns which achieve active change both locally and internationally. This year we will be focussing on global campaigns such as the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, working to ban fully autonomous weapons, as well as driving for change closer to home by supporting sanctuary scholars at Bristol to access legal services. We have a real community spirit in the society with our weekly letter-writing sessions (Wednesday 1-2pm and Friday 1-2pm on zoom), direct action events, as well as regular social meet-ups.
If you would like to be part of a fun, active and diverse activist group at Bristol then Amnesty International is the place for you.
To find out more like our Facebook page and take a look at Amnesty International UK's website to see the type of rights you can be campaigning for.
