Amnesty International (AI)

The vision of Amnesty International is for every person to enjoy every right as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.

Amnesty International’s purpose is to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth, and dignity are denied, and its members are people from across the globe who have chosen to take action and stand together for humanity and the protection of human rights. In pursuit of its vision, Amnesty International engages in both research and action focused on the prevention and abolishment of grave abuses of the rights to physical and mental integrity, freedom of conscience and expression, and freedom from discrimination within the context of its vision to promote all human rights.

Our chapter’s mission is to participate in publicity, campaigns, urgent action networks, education, and promotion of Amnesty International’s goals within Valparaiso University, our community, our country, and the world. By becoming a member of Amnesty International you can educate yourself and others, participate in our proactive force to protect human rights standards, and take certain action to halt human right violations occurring around the world.
