Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) Washington Local Group based in the Capitol Hill area, supports two cases of human rights defenders in Zimbabwe. Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA) and General Agriculture and Plantation Workers Union (GAPWUZ) work to support the civil and human rights of all Zimbabweans through grassroots activism. Because of their work, the leaders and members of both organizations face harassment, arrest and violence at the hands of authorities in Zimbabwe. AIUSA stands in solidarity with WOZA and GAPWUZ, raising awareness and doing what we can to ensure their safety. Your efforts tonight help us reach that goal.
