Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million supporters, members and activists in more than 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights.
We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion and are funded mainly by our membership and public donations.
Created in April 2014, Amnesty International Arizona encompasses all high school, college, and local chapters of the greater Phoenix area. We are currently looking to revitalize or bring in groups from other parts of the state as well.
*Guidelines for posting comments:
"Comments" is an area where readers can express views on postings and comments made by other readers. All people posting comments are responsible for the material they post.
We fully encourage our readers to engage in thoughtful and open debate. We recognize that there will often be dissenting views and passionate discussion, but please keep your comments on-topic and respectful at all times.
No abusive, hateful, derogatory, violent or off-topic comments will be tolerated: We reserve the right to remove any comments that we find offensive, harmful or unrelated to this community. Repeat offenders will be blocked.
Respect the rights, diversity and opinions of others: This page is about human rights – keep those values in mind when posting.
Address your comments to the full community:
a) Do not verbally attack any of the other commentors or carry on side conversations that exclude the rest of the community.
b) Our moderators and posters are active participants in this community, but they cannot respond to every comment. They are available to help explain, clarify, or support their statements, but will not be intimidated or incited into arguments.
Links to other resources: A comment may contain links to other sites, articles or blogs posts that it references or describes, so long as the comment stands on its own as a meaningful contribution. Do not just post a link with no explanation of how it relates to the original issue.
Thank you for being a part of the Human Rights community!
