Amnesty International is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning organisation which protects human rights worldwide. Amnesty investigates abuses, educates and mobilises the public, and tries to create a safer, fairer world.
We are the local Harrogate and Knaresborough Group and we support the work of Amnesty International in its core purpose: working to protect men, women and children wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
We raise funds, arrange events, join local activities and write letters to defend those who are threatened, maltreated or imprisoned as a result of exercising their right to free speech.
There is an informal meeting every month and a public letter writing event in Harrogate every month.
We welcome anyone interested in working to make the world a better place.
