About Amnesty International
We are a global movement of ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. We work to protect men, women and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. We investigate and expose human rights abuses, educate and mobilise the public and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world.

Is Amnesty International effective?
We are based on the belief that individuals working together in international solidarity can bring about real change.
In a world where those with power sometimes act with callous disregard for human suffering, this may seem hopelessly optimistic. However, since 1961 we have made appeals on behalf of thousands of individual victims of human rights abuses. During over 50 years of protecting and defending human rights, we have established a concrete record of achieving these aims on a multitude of issues and in many individuals’ cases.
How is Amnesty International funded?
We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.
To ensure our independence, we do not seek or accept money from governments or political parties for our work in documenting and campaigning against human rights abuses. Our funding depends on the contributions of our worldwide membership and fundraising activities. To safeguard the independence of the organisation, all contributors are strictly controlled by guidelines laid down by the International Council.
