Join the Amnesty International Feminist Network to hear from brave activists who are fighting for peace in Sudan.
The activists will talk about the grassroots movement of activists in Khartoum’s neighbourhoods, many of which are led by women, who are coming together, risking their lives to ensure the safety of the most vulnerable. There will be space to ask questions about the ongoing situation in Sudan, and we will all take a moment of action together.
