Status: Active

Purpose: Amnesty International is the world's largest human rights organization. Here at UT, we are student activists who work to promote awareness about human rights abuses at home and around the globe. We focus both on social, economic, and cultural rights as well as political rights.

Membership: UT students, faculty, and staff with a passion for human rights are welcome to join Amnesty. Members should be excited to develop their leadership and activism skills and look forward to spreading Amnesty's name around campus.

Functions: In our meetings, we write letters on behalf of Prisoners of conscience (prisoners held solely on their beliefs) to government embassies, officials, or the prisoners the prisoners themselves. We also host events on campus to raise awareness and fundraise for specific issues. In the past, our events have introduced activists to such topics as Maternal Mortality in the U.S., prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, and the war in the Congo.
