Young Professionals Amnesty International (YPAI) engages and supports Amnesty activists from diverse backgrounds entering the workplace. YPAI provides Amnesty and other human rights activists a space to network, organize, and contribute to the struggle for human rights in the U.S. and abroad.

YPAI provides a unique networking opportunity for present and prospective human rights leaders to take part in fun social activities like Human Rights Happy Hours, Amnesty BBQ’s, Human Rights Film Screenings, and the list goes on.

YPAI is structured around a monthly event that combines social and action-oriented activities focused on addressing human rights issues. YPAI is designed to provide young professionals the opportunity to exchange ideas, grow professionally, and proactively address the state of human rights worldwide.
