Georgetown Human Rights Action-Amnesty International is an umbrella organization comprised of students committed to human rights in global and local communities. We believe in taking action to combat de-humanizing policies, practices, and rhetoric, whether they occur in the urban centers of the United States or the rural sections of the developing world. In pursuit of this goal, we organize advocacy campaigns, educational events, fact-finding missions, and other forms of direct action. We also engage in work with other human rights organizations, including a particular relationship with Amnesty USA, to support their campaigns and efforts to ensure individuals across the world have human rights protections. We strive to give a voice to the unheard and put a face on the unseen victims of abuse.
