Amnesty International provides numerous ways for individuals interested in human rights to get involved in its work. Individuals can volunteer at one of the organization’s offices by translating documents, conducting research, assisting with accounting and human resources tasks, raising funds for human rights education, and collaborating in online communities. Most volunteers work part-time for up to six months, and the organization covers food and travel expenses.
Another way to get involved in the work of Amnesty International is to sign petitions to influence politicians to take action in a number of areas, from protecting the rights of earthquake victims in Nepal to demanding equality for marginalized groups around the globe. Finally, individuals can contribute to Amnesty International by becoming members of the organization and sharing their ideas to help inform future human rights campaigns.
