Amnesty International is the voice of freedom for thousands of people around the world. For over 50 years, we’ve stayed fully independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.
All our programmes, policies, and operations are non-partisan. We criticise and applaud objectively.
Our funding comes from people across New Zealand who believe a better world is possible. All of our financial decisions are guided by an elected board. Amnesty International is member-based.
