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 30 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 most of our monthly meetings.

Fundraising and contributing to various human rights initiatives.

Benefit Concert for AI Argentina

Please join us on Friday, June 23 from (doors open at 6.00pm) 7.00pm to 10.00pm at Latino's Restaurant 10708 98 Street NW, Edmonton. 

Support Amnesty International and learn more about the human rights situation in Argentina by joining us for an evening with friends and family listening to Latin folk and acoustic music by various Latin bands. All proceeds from the event will go to support the human rights work of the Amnesty International Group in Argentina. This concert will raise awareness and funds for the most important human rights issues in Argentina.
