Amnesty International USA is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognized human rights. This Meetup group is a resource for human rights advocates in the Puget Sound area who want to be active activists, and who enjoy the energy of being around like-minded people.
Our primary goals are advocacy, outreach, and education on human rights issues. Together, we can accomplish our goals in many ways, including lobbying elected officials, demonstrating at public events, organizing film discussions, and talking about issues in smaller group settings.
Amnesty International Puget Sound (AIPS) is the umbrella organization for the local and student groups in the area (and we or the Western Regional office can connect you to a group, or help you form one).
While currently the listed MeetUps are Amnesty International Group 4 Seattle's meetings and events ( see http://amnestyseattle.org for more information), we welcome other suggested Amnesty International MeetUps (which could include sub-groups on specific human rights issues, meetings between local and or student groups, forming new groups in nearby cities, casual meetings at coffee houses, for bowling, etc, and more. Other non-AI meetings for things like marketing, etc. are not welcome (and you can always create your own, relevant, MeetUp for that).
