NSW Branch Committee Updates 2018

November 2018

Want to find out what is happening next year?

Join our NSW regional update on 17 December at 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

The NSW Branch Committee wants to share our ideas for 2019, when the BC will become the NSW Activism Leadership Committee (ALC).

Who are we and what will we be doing?

The primary purposes of an Activism Leadership Committee are to:
• support members and activists in their region to be active participants in human rights campaigns and activism strategy; and
• co-ordinate regional events and member activities.

What opportunities will there be for the ALC as well as Amnesty International members and activists?

To get the answers to these questions and more, please join us in person, online or by telephone.

The regional update will be at the Amnesty office, Level 1, 79 Myrtle Street, Chippendale and will also be online via Zoom video conference at:

First, a big thank you to all who have taken the time to fill in the NSW Diversity Survey. We need more responses, so if you have not yet completed this survey, please read on to learn more.

The purpose of the survey is to help us understand more about our supporters in NSW and who they are. The data we collect will be used to improve our communications, and to ensure we have different opinions and perspectives represented in all that we say and do.

It will also help us to answer questions and provide information about the make up of the Amnesty movement and those who work to support human rights in our state.

The survey is anonymous and all the questions are optional to either answer or not. The information requested includes the following:

  • gender, age, place of birth, languages spoken, education level, employment status, income level, marital status, religion, political affiliation
The Diversity Survey has been sent out to all our NSW supporters and so far we have received 574 responses.  

We need more responses to have a statistically meaningful sample that we can rely upon. 

After the survey has been completed we will be sure to share the results with you.

Please click here to complete the survey. Survey closes 5pm, Friday 10 August.

Thank you for your help!
