Amnesty International Chapter At SFC
The award-winning Amnesty International Chapter at SFC is an activist student group that works closely with Amnesty International USA to promote human rights and social justice in the world and in the SFC community. Amnesty International is the Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights movement with more than 10 million members globally. We are promoting global citizenship and human rights by working in conjunction with human rights leaders and engaging in activism. Some campaigns we have participated in have been: Write For Rights Campaign, Urgent Action Network Actions, Activism X, Campaigns for Ending Gender Violence, and several more specific cases. We strongly believe in creating a community in which democratic dialogue and debate is crucial. Students in our Chapter--many of them in the Human Rights Minor at SFC--will work together to raise awareness and promote the ideals of equality, human dignity, freedom, and human rights. They get a chance to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Amnesty International USA and have the opportunity to participate in the Global Citizenship Alliance’s Seminar in Salzburg, Austria.
