Our Local Work

Here in New Zealand, Amnesty International is working hard to ensure that our government puts human rights at the centre of their response to the pandemic. 

- We’re playing a vital role as a government watchdog, attending select committees and speaking up for human rights. 
- We’re pushing for transparency from the Department of Corrections on how long people are being held in lockdown, with an immediate end to extended hours that amount to solitary confinement. 
- We’re working behind the scenes to advocate for and protect asylum seekers and refugees across Aotearoa. 

Will you join us with a regular monthly donation of $10? Your support for Amnesty International at this crucial time will enable us to continue the research, campaigning and advocacy you count on us for.
