About Amnesty International, USA Mid-Atlantic Region

Location:

600 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, Washington, DC 20003, US

Mission Statement

Amnesty International's vision is of a world in which every person enjoys all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.

In pursuit of this vision, AI's mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of the rights to physical and mental integrity, freedom of conscience and expression, and freedom from discrimination, within the context of its work to promote all human rights.

AI is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion. It does not support or oppose any government or political system, nor does it support or oppose the views of the victims whose rights it seeks to protect. It is concerned solely with the impartial protection of human rights.

Description

Amnesty International has a varied network of members and supporters around the world. Although they come from many different backgrounds and have widely different political and religious beliefs, they are united by a determination to work for a world where everyone enjoys human rights.

AI is a democratic, self-governing movement. Members and supporters across the nation, and throughout the world, are active in campaigns, events, and awareness efforts in the fight for human rights, supported by a global network of AI staff and volunteers. Movements such as the denouncement and end of torture, abolition of the death penalty, and prevention of violence against women are just a few cases of Amnesty's ongoing work.
