Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of "ordinary" people who work together to achieve extraordinary results.

The actions of Amnesty members are a beacon of hope for many people who are imprisoned because of their beliefs, for men and women on death row, for the tortured, for those suffering the loss of "disappeared" loved ones, and for people seeking refuge from harm.

The glowing candle flame is like the voice of nearly two million Amnesty International members around the world. You can make a difference.

The Edmonton group has been active for over 40 years and has a dedicated core group of members. Our activities include:

Advocacy by sending letters, faxes, petitions and emails.

Public education and outreach by hosting events, information tables and speakers at many of our monthly meetings.

Fundraising and contributing to various human rights initiatives.
