Our Nobel Prize winning, 7 million strong movement continues to have a worldwide impact. Our strength rests entirely on the support of people like you who are committed to protecting human rights.

Your donations and activism ensure that Amnesty International remains independent, nonpolitical and unbiased. Without this freedom, we wouldn’t be able to criticise, question or analyse the policies and actions of governments and other decision-makers.

Our independence also means we depend on your generous support to continue fearlessly defending human rights. Your partnership with us strengthens our ability to shine a light into the darkest corners of the world.
