Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognized human rights to be respected and protected for everyone. It is a global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in more than 150 countries and territories who campaign to end grave abuses of human rights. We believe human rights abuses anywhere are the concern of people everywhere. So, outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world, we work to improve people’s lives through campaigning and international solidarity. Our mission is to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights and to demand justice  for those whose rights have been violated. Our members and supporters exert influence on governments, political bodies, companies and intergovernmental groups. Activists take up human rights issues by mobilizing public pressure through mass demonstrations, vigils and direct lobbying as well as online and offline campaigning. Working with and for individuals the world over, we  campaign so that every person may enjoy all of the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  We undertake research and take action aimed at preventing and ending grave abuses of these rights, demanding that all governments and other powerful entities respect the rule of law.  It means we campaign globally and locally where ever we can make a difference. For example, we take action to:  Stop violence against women Defend the rights and dignity of those trapped in poverty Abolish the death penalty Oppose torture and combat terror with justice Free prisoners of conscience Protect the rights of refugees and migrants Regulate the global arms trade   Independent and democratic - We have a number of safeguards in place to protect our autonomy.  We are: Independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion Democratic and self-governing Financially self-sufficient, thanks to the generous support of donations provided by individual members and supporters   We do not support or oppose any government or political system and neither do we necessarily support or oppose the views of the victims/survivors or human rights defenders whose rights we seek to protect.
