Activism around the world is changing and we are too! These days activism often starts with putting your hand in your pocket, taking out your phone and registering your protest. It’s also how most organising to defend human rights is happening around the world.
That’s why we are using mobile phones for our mobilising and organising as a more immediate way for us to make the most impact together!
Here’s how it works: You can opt in to receive messages from us on your phone. You can choose SMS, WhatsApp, or both.
On SMS you will receive approximately one action a month such as signing a petition; something you can do immediately to protect human rights around the world.
On WhatsApp you will be part of a broadcast list receiving one to two messages a week directly to you – it’s not another WhatsApp group😊 You will receive opportunities to get involved in protests, festivals and actions in person, as well as acting online.
We’d like to have you on board to act for human rights.
You need to be 18 years old to join. For information on youth activism (activism in schools, youth membership and our activism academy programme) contact: youth[at]amnesty.ie
