The Story of Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in over 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights.

Our vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.

We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion, and are funded mainly by our membership and public donations.

After more than 50 years of groundbreaking achievements, Amnesty International is now embarking on a major process of evolution, to adapt to the dramatic changes in the world we operate in, and to increase the impact of our human rights work.

We are introducing a new, global way of working -- with a distributed centre and Regional Hubs of research, campaigns and communications -- because we owe it to the people we work for to be the most effective force for freedom and justice that we can, globally.

As we develop this process -- in line with the long-held desire of our international membership -- we will post regular articles, stories and personal accounts to explain what is happening, and why it is important to those on the human rights front line. 

Come with us on our journey and help us make a real difference to people's lives by becoming a member or supporter of Amnesty International in Malaysia http://aimalaysia.org/become-a-member
