Amnesty International

Who we are

We campaign for human rights on campus. We are part of the global Amnesty International movement and coordinate our campaigns across the UK. We meet weekly and have regular socials. Amnesty International is a global movement that campaigns to end human rights abuses globally. The topics can be as narrow as releasing someone who was unjustly imprisoned to, as wide as fighting against police brutality. With around 10 million supporters of Amnesty, our university society does its part to campaign for specific issues. Previous campaigns have included climate change, Stop the Killer Robots, and last year's very successful Let's Talk About Yes campaign which focused on consent and bodily autonomy.


How You Can Get Involved

We hold weekly meetings in which we discuss and organise campaigning on various human rights issues, especially our semester focus. Every year, we spend time making resources, staging protests, fundraising, petitioning, hosting our radio show, and even organising a live music event.  We meet every week on a Thursday (check our instagram for times and locations!)


Our Focus this Year

Every year, we democratically vote on an issue that our members feel most passionate about. This year we will be campaigning for refugee rights! Over the course of the year, we will be raising awareness of unfair legislation, specific challenges to refugees in the UK, and the global refugee crisis. We hope to make real change for refugee students on campus and the wider refugee communtiy in Birmingham.

Remember to check out our Instagram to hear about upcoming events! :)
