Fight bad guys. No cape required.


Amnesty International USA
This is your movement. Shine a light.

When journalist Lydia Cacho picked up the phone on June 17, she heard a low, gritty voice on the other end.

"Shut your mouth or we'll kill you."

As one of Mexico's leading investigative journalists and women's rights advocates, Lydia has been on a collision course with some of the most powerful men in her country.

Her enemies tried to rape her to force her into silence. But she remained undeterred, and opened a shelter for battered women. She went on to write not one, but two books exposing child pornography and sex trafficking rings in Cancun. She remains more resolved than ever to protect children from sexual exploitation.

We will never stop fighting for people like Lydia, who risk their lives to shine a light on human suffering. On Dec. 10, Human Rights Day, we honor champions of humanity like Lydia and the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Join this inspiring movement. Celebrate Human Rights Day with Amnesty. Become a member today.

TRIPLE YOUR GIFT: Join our Partners of Conscience monthly giving program before Dec. 31 and a generous donor will triple your 1st monthly gift. You'll also be eligible to receive a beautiful limited edition 50th anniversary Amnesty candle. It's a great time to join.

Your financial support powers the mobilization of millions. It helps human rights defenders walk free again, closes secret torture chambers, and protects the rights of people living in poverty.

You may never really know the people you are helping to protect, but know this -- they felt your presence. They know you made a difference. They are forever grateful. Lydia Cacho says this:
"You and I might live miles apart, but our activism unites us. Human rights for all people -- it's why we fight. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."
The struggle for justice and liberty does not end when the prison door opens. It ends when the door closes, to everyone, forever.

Together, we fight bad guys and save lives. And we can do so much more with your support today.

This is your movement. This is your Amnesty. Shine a light with us. Become a member today.
