QLD/NNSW Get Active! December 2018

Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 06:30 PM · 4 rsvps
Brisbane Action Centre in Newstead, Australia

Join us in the fight to defend human rights! Every person deserves equal rights and fundamental freedoms, yet these are abused around the world on a daily basis.

We want to change that. At Amnesty International, we fight for justice through research, campaigning, and advocating - pressuring governments to change and take action. 

We're a community of people who defend human rights around the world, and at home in Australia. 
We work to make meaningful change through campaigning for refugees, calling for action on indigenous children and by supporting individuals at risk.

Come along Thursday, December 13 to find out about what the Amnesty community does in Brisbane, and how you can be involved. Volunteers are integral to Amnesty's action and work to really make a difference. If you share a passion for human rights and making a difference, now is your chance to take part in the movement.

See you there! 



Write for Rights Community Blitz Adelaide

Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 10:00 AM
Adelaide Action Centre in Adelaide, Australia
Join the Urgent Actions Network on the streets of Adelaide collecting signatures for Write for Rights!
 
Write for Rights is about bringing people together to take action. When tens of thousands of Amnesty activists take action; writing letters, signing petitions, and sending solidarity cards, we know that we can create change.
 
This year, activists all around the world will take action for women persecuted because they spoke out for human rights; women imprisoned in Iran for opposing the death penalty, attacked with acid in Ukraine for standing up for LGBTQI rights, and disability advocates facing discrimination in Kyrgyzstan.
 
The world would be a poorer place without women like these standing up for human rights – so let’s stand with them.
 
We will meet at the Adelaide Action at 10 am for a briefing on the cases, partner up, gather our petitions and hit the streets of Adelaide in order to collect as many actions as possible for human rights defenders!
