Nelson Group


We’re a committed group of activists who love to raise awareness of global issues with local people and with people passing through Nelson. We act on Amnesty International priority campaigns and are great at getting the public involved.

We host a stall in Nelson Market every few months. We also participate in Amnesty International’s annual Write for Rights letter writing event and the fundraising street collection in August, including outreach to Richmond and Stoke.

We are also involved in the Individuals at Risk Programme, writing letters regularly in support of two Laotian prisoners of conscience.

We would love for you to join us and are always looking for fellow human rights defenders to be part of our team.

Please get in touch to find out when and where our next meeting will be held.
