Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why join an Activism Leadership Committee?
One of the many important and exciting ways in which Amnesty members can protect and defend human rights is by joining the Activism Leadership Committee in their region.
Join your local Activism & Leadership Committee because you are passionate about human rights, and because you have ideas for how to increase engagement with Amnesty’s human rights campaigns. If you want to support other members to provide input into human rights campaigns and activism strategy, or you want to coordinate regional events and activities, then this is the place for you.
You can belong to an Activism Leadership Committee at the same time as you participate in other Amnesty structures, such as a local group or thematic network.
2. How can I join an Activism Leadership Committee?
Any Amnesty member can nominate to join the Activism Leadership Committee for their region. All Amnesty members are eligible to vote to elect their ALC. Each June/July members will receive information on how to nominate for the ALC, and how to vote to elect their ALC. 
3. Can I join an Activism Leadership Committee if I live outside of the capital or major cities of my region?
Yes. We encourage regional diversity within Amnesty’s governance structure. Elected members of an Activism Leadership Committee unable to physically attend a meeting will be able to join the Committee meeting via Zoom. Details for joining will be included in the Notice of Meeting and agenda for your Activism Leadership Committee.
