They believe in the power of Amnesty International and our millions-strong global human rights movement:
“I feel that Amnesty International is the most civilized organization in history. Its currency is the written word. Its weapon is the letter; that’s why I am a member. I believe in its non-violence; I believe in its effectiveness.” – Sting
“Amnesty mobilises thousands of people who have never been tortured or imprisoned for their beliefs to act on behalf of those who have. … Ordinary people, whose personal well-being and security are assured, join together in huge numbers to save people they do not know, and will never meet.” – J K Rowling
Won’t you join them and millions of others worldwide in defending human rights? Alone, a candle – Amnesty’s symbol – is a fragile, flickering light that can be extinguished by a whisper. Shared by millions, it becomes a shining beacon of hope. It becomes Amnesty International.
This month, we’re passing the candle to you. Keep it bright with your gift. Donate in September and your gift will be matched dollar for dollar! Please pass it on to inspire others to join our movement.
