Amnesty International USA’s 2016 Annual General Meeting and Human Rights Conference will bring over a thousand human rights activists from around the world together and will give us an opportunity to engage in networking opportunities, inspiring plenaries, outstanding keynotes, and hands-on skill-building workshops as well as to shape the policies of the organization.
Our theme this year is “Change Our World.” We stand shoulder to shoulder with activists in the United States and throughout the world to make a lasting human rights impact. We strive to embrace and reflect all identities that make up humanity in order to foster a world where justice, freedom, and dignity are recognized as central to the inalienable rights of all human beings.
“You cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you see yourself as belonging to it and responsible for changing it,” Grace Lee Boggs.
