Amnesty International is a global movement of over 7 million supporters in more than 150 countries united by a core principle: that HUMAN RIGHTS ARE FOR EVERYONE.
But we think believing alone is not enough. Whatever our background and whatever our world views, we are committed to taking action to make that core belief a reality. We are campaigners. Solidarity with those fighting for their human rights is our touchstone.
We are democratic and self-governing – every member has a say in deciding what we do and how we do it.
We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.
We do not take money from governments for our campaigning work and are financially autonomous, thanks to the generosity of our individual members and supporters.
