For more than 50 years Amnesty International has shown that tremendous progress is possible, that ordinary people can unite across borders and beliefs to affect great change. We have made human rights a household phrase.
But the human rights landscape is shifting, and we must challenge ourselves to adapt the way we work. We must be bold and imaginative. We must move ahead of the curve.
Amnesty needs your donation to respond to the dramatic changes taking place all over the world.
Your gift today will allow us to inject innovation, speed and expanded capacity into this movement. It will enable us to:
Operate from the frontlines. We're increasing our presence in India, South Africa, Brazil and Hong Kong. We will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with human rights defenders, activists and partners, wherever they are, and enhance the speed, relevance and credibility of our response to human rights violations.
Recruit the next generation now. By offering young people an immersive and inclusive experience, from social media to social life, we will make it easier than ever to connect with human rights activism.
Unleash the power of technology. We are turning the devices our activists use every day into weapons for the defense of human rights in real-time. We will use our phones to free prisoners of conscience, satellites to predict human rights abuses, and maps to connect us to activists worldwide.
We owe it to all who are facing human rights abuses to be the most effective force for freedom and justice that we can be.
You know what we're fighting for together. And you know where we're headed.
This is in your hands now.
With great respect and appreciation, Frank Jannuzi CHIEF ADVOCACY OFFICER AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL USA
