“Amnesty International’s global mission is rooted in a fundamental commitment to the rights, dignity, and well-being of every person.”  There are people all over the world who lack these things which we take for granted, a place to live, food to eat, a school to attend, health care, safety to practice religion or say what they want, equality under the law, and the protection of their human rights, i.e. not being tortured or detained without a trial.  Meeting on Thursdays after school in Mr. Howell’s room, the AI Club would help you not only become informed, but involved as well.  We will join letter writing campaigns and hold fund-raisers for not only Amnesty International, but Doctors Without Borders, STAND Now, a student anti-genocide coalition, The Emancipation Network, and other organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life of those who really need it.
