AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: 2017 Annual General Meeting and Human Rights Conference

March 10, 2017March 12, 2017

$15 – $700

Our theme this year is The Power of Us. Together, we have the power to create a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. The 2017 Annual General Meeting will equip and connect Amnesty International USA’s members and activists to help defend the inalienable human rights of all people – no matter who they are or where they are.

DID YOU KNOW?

Authentic Southwestern culture permeates the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. First founded as a Spanish colonial outpost, this city has become a melting pot of traditions. The numerous Pueblo sites and Indigenous-focused museums display New Mexico’s deep-rooted Native American heritage. The influence of the indigenous Zia tribe is boldly displayed on the state flag. The ancient red symbol represents the four sacred obligations one must develop: a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit, and a devotion to the welfare of others.

AIUSA members, too, are devoted to the welfare of others as they work to defend human rights through our priority campaigns. Our members in the West are leading the fight against gun violence and bringing attention to severe cases of police brutality.

Through our campaign, People on the Move, our members can have the opportunity to make significant strides for the strong migrant community, and continue to advocate for rights along the Southwest border. AIUSA members and activists are combatting injustice and human rights violations one letter, one protest, and one campaign at a time.
