Amnesty International USA Group 19

Palo Alto, California

Group 19 is the Amnesty International volunteer chapter for the San Francisco Mid-Peninsula area and one of the strongest, most successful Amnesty groups in the country. We engage in casework and campaigns; we educate the community on human rights concerns; we raise thousands of dollars to support our work and the international movement. With your participation Group 19 would be an even more powerful force for human rights. Join us!
