Who are we?

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 10 million people who campaign to end human rights abuses wherever they occur. To do this we investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilise the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We strive to achieve this through the power of collective action and organized campaigning. 

At UCL's Amnesty International society is the university's largest student charity, and it represents Amnesty International's mission amongst the student body. As a society, we provide a platform for students who are passionate about human rights and building a fairer world to come together and make a difference. To do this, we organize all sorts of meaningful and fun events throughout the year, often with other UCL societies, or even other London Amnesty societies!

What we do?

Our main objectives are raising awareness about key human rights violations around the world, and supporting victims in any way we can. To do this, we regularly: 

  • Organize informative sessions or stalls. 
  • Coordinate student campaigns. 
  • Run letter writing workshops. 
  • Set up fundraisers and support groups. 

We are also very committed to educating our members with a wide range of skills, particularly those relevant to human rights campaigning, but transferable to politics, business, and much more! For this, we often run:

  • Speaker events with various key figures. 
  • Debates, or MUN style conferences. 
  • Outings to relevant businesses and institutions.

Finally, as we all love having fun, we often organize great socials, such as picnics, pub crawls, or quizzes! If you want to make a difference, meet new people and have some fun in doing so then this is the society for you!
