Happy birthday to us! And by us we mean YOU — Amnesty activists, members and supporters.
On May 28, 1961, Amnesty International was born. On that day, we didn’t know a simple idea — people should not be jailed for their beliefs — would spark the largest, most powerful human rights movement of our time.
Then on Saturday, May 28, 2011 join us for a virtual Toast to Freedom. Amnesty members from around the world will be sharing what freedom they value most (e.g. ‘I am free to vote’) on their blogs and social networks. If you’re on Twitter use hashtag #tofreedom and follow the conversation.
