Amnesty Groups

Do you have an Amnesty Group at your school, university or local community?

Amnesty Groups are a great way for young people to engage in important human rights education and activism. With the support of Amnesty, young people can learn, skill up and take action for human rights as an Amnesty Group.

If are interested in starting an Amnesty Club, or perhaps you already have one up & running but want addition guidance and support, let us know in the form at the bottom of this page!


HRE Resource

Franklin: Human Rights Education Resource for Year 9-10 Students!

Amnesty International Australia has partnered with the producers of Franklin to develop an ACARA-aligned human rights education resource for high school teachers complete with lesson plans, learning materials, assessment tools, and cross-curriculum connections… just in time for the 2024 school year!

Through an in-depth exploration of the Franklin River blockade and its impact on Australian society and environmental law, this resource aims to educate, empower, and inspire students to learn about the importance of the right to protest, the role of protest in Australia’s democracy, why it’s crucial to protect the civil and political right to protest, and the power of grassroots movements to effect change… just like the Franklin River protectors did!

Teachers and Students

Human Rights Friendly Schools

Amnesty International supports schools and their wider communities in all regions of the world to build a global culture of human rights. Human Rights Friendly Schools aim to empower young people and promote the active participation of all members of the school community to integrate human rights values and principles into all areas of school life.


A Human Rights Friendly School places human rights at the heart of the learning experience and makes human rights an integral part of everyday school life. From the way decisions are made in schools, to the way people treat each other, to the curriculum and extra-curricular activities on offer, right down to the very surroundings in which students are taught, the school becomes an exemplary model for human rights education.
