Amnesty international is a non-governmental charity whose simple goal is to protect the freedom, justice, truth and dignity of every single woman, man and child. With more than 7 million members and supporters their brave campaigns for human rights have led to nothing but countless success stories.
Here at UWE our purpose is to make sure that our students are aware of the human rights breaches; from those happening at our doorstep to those happening across the globe. By running campaigns, holding a variety of fundraising events, inviting riveting guest speakers and, of course, holding fun socials!
Join us in our common belief that injustice anywhere should not be silenced and ignored but that instead it should be heard and resolved. So find time to step away from the bubble that is student life and come along to one of our events if you are interested in actively becoming part of a solution for, as the amnesty motto goes, ‘It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness’.
