Amnesty International - WashU
Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights. Learn more about the Campaigns, Issues, Cases, and Countries we’re currently focused on.
FREE PEOPLE FROM ICE DETENTION
No one should be punished for seeking safety or for trying to stay with their families in the country they call home. AIUSA-WashU started a campaign to advocate to free people from ICE detention, and restore access to asylum.
AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE
The crisis of gun violence in the United States is getting worse. Too many kids and teens are losing their lives, and communities of color are bearing the brunt of gun violence. We all have the right to live free from gun violence.
REFUGEE & MIGRANTS' RIGHTS
As refugees reach their destination to a new place, there will be other challenges waiting for them to face.
With the hope of better days ahead, they come to their new home with open arms, encouraged to walk that extra mile to achieve something big and to finally settle down and live a safe and stable life.
Nevertheless, challenges keep arising, keeping this sense of belonging hard to reach – in the real meaning of being home.
CHINA'S FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND PUBLIC PROTEST
People across China rallied this weekend against the government’s increasingly unpopular zero-COVID policy after a deadly apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang, with some directly challenging the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It represents the largest wave of popular protest since student-led demonstrations in 1989. Authorities are scrambling to respond to the protests, which have been accompanied by an even broader expression of online support.
