Amnesty International

Below you will find photos and videos taken as an Amnesty International employee.

(July 2016-August 2017).

Amnesty International (AI) is a global movement of more than 7 million people who take injustice personally. AI campaigns for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.

This is raw footage from one of the days our Amnesty International office went to deliver clothes to residents of Skid Row.

What does AI do?

  • AI investigates and exposes the facts, whenever and wherever abuses happen. 

  • AI lobbies governments, and other powerful groups such as companies. Making sure they keep their promises and respect international law. 

  • By telling the powerful stories of the people we work with, AI mobilizes millions of supporters around the world to campaign for change and to stand in defence of activists on the frontline. 

  • AI supports people to claim their rights through education and training.
