Amnesty International Western Regional Conference Update

Oct 23, 2017 by Jessica B Roberson

It is our sincere pleasure to invite you to this year’s Western Regional Conference.

Join us November 4, 2017, as we stand shoulder to shoulder in the great city of Tempe to make a lasting human rights impact. The Western Regional Conference brings together hundreds of Amnesty members and other human rights activists from around the country. With our Grassroots Host Committee and Regional Office as co-hosts, together we will continue our tradition of engaging in networking opportunities, inspiring plenaries, and hands-on skill-building workshops, as well as shaping the policies of the organization.

As activists, we will be challenged to initiate change within our own communities. This will only happen with you – we need you there! See the link below for event registration:

And whether or not you're able to attend the conference, please consider attending our Member Empowerment Training Day on November 5, 2017. See below for more information:

The Membership Empowerment Training Project will be offering a Day of Training focused on member group skill-building on Sunday, Sunday November 5th (the day after the Western Regional Conference). This is an opportunity to make the most of your travel dollars taking additional workshops in the same venue as the Regional Conference, and we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity.
