INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S NOTE

Margaret HuangTwo human rights defenders in the Democratic Republic of Congo were just freed – thanks in part of the work of Amnesty International USA’s members and supporters.

Fred Bauma and Yves Makwambala are members of a pro-democracy youth group who were arrested last year and faced the death penalty, simply because of their nonviolent advocacy. Through Amnesty’s Write for Rights campaign last year, more than 170,000 people sent letters, texts, and emails demanding their release. While they’re finally free today, Amnesty is pressing the government to drop the charges against them entirely.

Last year alone, Amnesty International helped secure the freedom of 144 people who were imprisoned unjustly. And we don’t stop there. Amnesty members and supporters are campaigning to change the laws and policies in order to protect people’s human rights – from abortion bans in Ireland and Argentina to the lack of standards and accountability for police use of lethal force in the U.S. and Brazil.

Thank you for your activism and your partnership.

It's Not Enough: World Leaders Fail Refugees...Again

The good news is that on Sept. 19, the United Nations General Assembly will gather to address the refugee crisis and vote on a new Global Compact on Refugees.

The bad news: we’ve reviewed the draft Compact, and it’s an abject failure for refugees.

The Compact is a historic opportunity to find a desperately-needed global solution to the refugee crisis. Instead, world leaders have chosen to procrastinate crucial decisions even as refugees drown at sea and languish in camps with no hope for the future.

In response to this colossal failure, and to push world leaders to finally and quickly bear responsibility for the refugee crisis, we’re convening our own summit on Sept. 19 – which will include Amnesty directors from several countries and outline what world leaders must do now to address this humanitarian crisis.

Follow the summit on AIUSA’s website and social media platforms later this month.

The America I Believe In, 15 Years After the 9/11 Attacks

As the United States approaches the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Amnesty reflects on the aftermath of the attacks, and our shared desire for justice and respect for human rights.

As part of Amnesty’s “The America I Believe In” campaign, we’re conducting a Congressional briefing on Friday, Sept. 16. The panel will feature individuals who lost family members in the attacks of 9/11, along with representatives from Amnesty UK and Amnesty Kenya to share Amnesty’s documentation of abuses and attacks by armed groups occurring internationally.

Monitoring the Dakota Oil Access Pipeline Protests in North Dakota

Earlier this month, after sending a delegation of human rights observers to monitor protest conditions, AIUSA called on state and local authorities to take specific steps to protect Indigenous communities’ right to peacefully protest construction of a disputed pipeline in North Dakota.

In a letter to the governor of North Dakota, the North Dakota Highway Patrol and the Morton County Sheriff’s Department, AIUSA asked authorities to remove a roadblock to the protest site, urged them to meet regularly with protesters and community leaders, and reminded officials of their duty to facilitate peaceful protest.

Donate to AmnestyTraining Human Rights Leaders

Amnesty’s Human Rights Leaders Institute (HRLI) is an annual event that brings together diverse human rights leaders from around the nation to build the human rights movement. This year it took place in Chicago, IL, from July 28-30. Sessions included the human rights framework, communications, organizing & mobilization, campaigns, and how diversity, equity, and inclusion impact our work. There was a diversity of new and long-time Amnesty activists across race, gender, sexual identity, and religious affiliation, including Board members, guests from Amnesty International Mexico, Puerto Rico, Canada-Francophone, and Canada-English Speaking.

The HRLI equips leaders to deepen their commitment to organizing in their communities by lifting up and working on the priorities for the strategic plan. It was our most successful HRLI to date with 100% of respondents to the training evaluation saying, “I would highly recommend the Human Rights Leaders Institute to other AIUSA volunteer leaders.”

“Without paternalism: free training series for people with experience as refugees: critical sensitization and empowerment workshops in solidarity work“‏

Dear activists, dear friends and colleagues,

We are from the association (GLOKAL E.V. ). We offer free training
series for up to 15 people with experience as refugees which they can
learn about solidarity work and racism and make critical empowerment and
sensitization about training in the field of fleeing .

the need for trainer in the field of anti-discrimination, refugees and
solidarity work is currently very high. At the same time the labor
access for people with refugees experience is very difficult, so many
people without refugees' experience acting as expert in this topic we
want to change this by giving chance to people with refugees' experience
to this qualification series. The participants get by this learning
access to different educational methods. At the same time we want to
offer a space where they can develop their ideas.

The qualification consists of 5 modules (each 3 days) and take place in
Berlin.

The preliminary program with the contents is annexed. At the first
meeting with the participants it will be discussed, matched, and
extended as required.

The majority of the qualification series will be held in German. If
there is a need we can organize translation into English.

We have some space for people they want to be part and they're from
other cities. We can help to organize travel expenses and overnight.

We especially encourage refugee women to participate in the
qualification series.

That is why we will offer childcare if necessary.

We ask you to forward this email to all the list, networks and possible
interested people.

If you have questions, please write us at the following e-mail

opat [at] glokal [dot] org
or painemal [at] glokal [dot] org

We look forward to the future participants

Greetings,

LLanquiray Painemal
