Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of ordinary people who work together to achieve extraordinary results. Each day we stand in solidarity with - and help protect - individuals and communities around the world whose human rights are under attack. We appeal for the violations to stop. We mobilize public pressure to prevent human rights abuses from taking place. And we support Amnesty's campaigns through our financial contributions. Amnesty members come from many different cultures and backgrounds. What unites us is our determination to build a world where all people live in dignity, security and freedom.

 

The Calgary group is, in fact, an amalgamation of two groups (2 and 57), one of which is the second oldest Canadian group, founded in 1974. We have about 90 members. Meetings are usually held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Everyone is welcome! New Member Orientation is held as needed. Please contact us for time and location of the meeting or membership inquiry.

 

Membership is $40 (students and unemployed $15). For more information on membership, click on the membership button on the main menu.

Volunteer Opportunities

 

We have at least one monthly event or volunteer opportunity.  Currently, we often have a monthly film screening of highlights from the Vancouver Film Festival (usually the 2nd Tuesday of each month) and a monthly informal chat and letter writing at a local tea house (usually the third Thursday of each month).  Please check the website to verify the date as scheduling is dependent upon the theatre bookings.  Special events are planned to mark significant days and will be announced in advance.
