The battle to protect our human rights has always come from the community. Courageous everyday people standing up, speaking out and challenging injustice. Amnesty has a long history of standing with communities everywhere to fight oppression. This is a fight which continues today. We are seeing increased attacks on our rights at the moment. Powerful figures are trying to restrict our ability to campaign for a just world. Never has people power been so needed and grassroots movements are the way to get there.
But, we need to unite behind a vision that will show us the way and here’s ours! By the end of 2023 no one will be able to dispute our movement’s widespread strength and power. We will have a visible and active presence in communities right across Australia. Together we will empower a skilled and confident activist base who will lead from the ground up. We will deepen the connections between individual activists and with other grassroots movements. Because we all need to stand together in this fight! We now have a map for how to get there, so here’s an overview of how we are going to do it.
If you are not yet a part of our movement and this strategy has inspired you, head over to our Get Active page to get more involved.
