Be a part of an action-oriented community.

We create change to live in a world where human rights are above all else.

We are a part of Amnesty International, a global movement of more than 7 million people in over 150 countries and territories who campaign to end abuses of human rights.

Change is possible. This is how we contribute.

Amnesty International at UW-Madison works to establish quantifiable change against injustice and human rights abuses within the UW Madison community, nationally, and internationally.

On campus, we strive to educate our students on global issues while giving them ways to take action. We do this through peaceful demonstrations, petitions, phone calling officials, letter writing campaigns, social media activism, and a variety of other creative advocacy tactics.

The Amnesty International - UW Madison chapter is not affiliated with any political party as we are a non-partisan organization.
