From March 22-24, you’re invited to do so in a major way during Amnesty International’s Annual General Meeting and Human Rights Conference.
We’ll gather just minutes away from Washington, D.C. in the beautiful city of Bethesda to tackle some of most pressing human rights issues and questions facing our world today. You’ll be able to connect with leading human rights experts, organizers and mobilizers from around the world and gain essential skills in advocacy and community organizing.
Register today! Space is filling up quickly.
As Director of Events, I’ve had the pleasure of attending more Amnesty gatherings than I can count! But year after year, Amnesty’s Human Rights Conference continues to inspire me like no other. There’s no other event that combines activism through concerts, marches, lectures and workshops in such a powerful way!
Here’s just a taste of who you could meet when you come to Use Your Power:
- Lydia Cacho — Mexican journalist, author and a feminist activist against violence
- De’Jaun Correia — nephew of Troy Davis
- Laila el-Haddad — author, blogger, political analyst, social activist, and parent-of-three from Gaza City. Her work includes Gaza Mom: Palestine, Politics, Parenting, and Everything In Between and The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey
- Colin Goddard — survivor of the Virginia Tech shooting in April 2007 and anti-gun violence activist
And you won’t be able to deny the electricity that comes from having Congressman Jim McGovern, filmmaker Carlos Lascano, Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, performer Luix Saldana and inspiring bands SOJA and Sins of the Loose Buttons all under the same roof! Get more details about Amnesty’s Human Rights Conference.
Don’t miss out — there’s no better time than right now to register.
