Amnesty International USA’s National Priorities/Core Campaigns include:
The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights, and that’s why Amnesty International opposes it in all cases.
Fundamental human rights are violated when police can kill people without justification or accountability – and that’s why Amnesty International is working to enact standards and safeguards to protect everyone.
We all need safety from violence and terrorism, but no government should sacrifice people’s human rights in the name of national security.
Around the world, there are people being tortured or imprisoned by their government because of who they are or what they believe.
We all have the right to be treated equally.
