“Is your activism grounded in anger?” my friend asked. We sat around in the dimly lit restaurant after a day of workshops, panels, and planning at the Midwest Regional Conference vigorously discussing and debating this question.

Sharpen Your Activism Skills And Help Shape Amnesty’s Future

An Amnesty activist asks a question at our Northeast Regional Conference in Boston.

On November 10th, human rights activists across the United States will gather for Amnesty USA’s 2012 Regional Conferences.  These powerful annual events bring together Amnesty activists and members to network, learn from issue and organizing experts, vote on Amnesty’s future direction, and come away inspired to build a human rights movement in their own community.  We hope you’ll join us this year!

Staff and volunteers have been working around the clock to plan the five gatherings that will be held in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, DC.  Register now.
