What does Maine East’s Amnesty International group do?

Maine East Amnesty International is a student human rights activist group that supports Amnesty’s fight for all human rights. Throughout the school year we focus on 2-3 major human rights issues such as the crisis in Darfur, the death penalty, children’s rights, and torture. We also spearhead awareness campaigns and petition drives ("The America I Believe In") for human rights.

Over the course of the year we plan on doing many different human rights activities: writing letters to free prisoners of conscience, organizing actions in school to increase awareness of human rights issues, screening short documentaries and feature-length films, holding discussions and "teach-ins" on how to take action, taking field trips to see speakers and attend Amnesty events, and collaborating with other high school Amnesty groups on projects and actions.
