The purpose of our Human Rights Conference is to inspire and connect activists, give them the tools they need and help make change happen.

The conference may be over, but our commitment is unwavering and our movement to bring human rights home, in Chicago and around the world, has only just begun.

Thank you to all of our activists who made the 2014 Human Rights Conference the place to be this weekend. You are our power.

  1. So privileged to have been there. MANY thanks to everyone who worked to make the conference so inspiring and enjoyable: amazing speakers, inspiring new policies, fantastic technology, well-planned logistics, luxurious accommodations, and delicious food. If only the victims for whom we work could some day enjoy the same….

  2. It was an honorable responsibility for Amnesty to have done those activities in Chicago!

  3. Nice and exiting AGM. Attendance was very successful. Bravo to all the organizers!!! There's much work to do at home, we saw many examples of torture and other abuses in Chicago. We need to be concerned and also we cannot forget that we are part of a greater family in the world that also needs our support .
