Background on Our Chapter
Founded in 1961, Amnesty International
is a Nobel Prize winning grassroots activist organization with
over one-million members world wide.
Takoma Park's local AI group has been active
since 1982. At present we are working on the regional special focus case (2 prisoners of
conscience in Indonesia), advocating for a fair trial for a prisoner in China, working to
repeal Maryland's death penalty, and sponsoring the
Human Rights Painting Project.
