Join A Local Group

Local Groups are at the heart of what we do. They offer powerful support to campaigns, raise vital funds and represent Amnesty in their local communities.

Whether you’re an old hand at grass roots campaigning, or you’ve never done anything like this at all, you’ll enjoy meeting like-minded people and  making a difference. Our local groups carry out a wide range of activities from campaigning on individual cases to raising money for human rights.

By joining your local group, you could be involved in:

  • Letter writing and other forms of action on behalf of individuals whose rights have been abused.
  • Organising events and getting involved in local activities
  • Lobbying politicians to hold the government accountable on human rights
  • Campaigning on the issues that matter to you, including women’s rights, torture and individuals at risk
  • Fundraising to support our work

We support our local groups by providing regular campaign updates, training opportunities and campaigning resources.
