Amnesty International USA
INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S NOTE
Welcome to the first monthly issue of Amnesty Insider for those
who make Amnesty International USA what it is—members and
activists across the country and around the world who take
injustice personally and work for human rights for all people.
The last few weeks have been extraordinary, with the release of
Alfred Woodfox in Louisiana and the government of Burkina Faso
affirming its commitment to eradicating early and forced
marriage—two major victories that Amnesty activists and members helped make happen.
As always, we celebrate these phenomenal successes by working even harder for the
individuals whose human rights are still being denied and by helping change the systems
that perpetuate injustice—from Rio de Janeiro to Missouri.
You can read about some of our latest work in this newsletter, and I hope you’ll be joining
us at the Annual General Meeting in Miami this weekend to begin to shape our work for
the years ahead. If you won’t be attending in person, you can follow along online through
Thank you for your activism,
