If you are interested in becoming a member of Amnesty International, please read the following: (the instruction may seems to be U.S.-centric, but most of the inquiries we get ARE from people living in the United States.)
People become members of Amnesty International in two ways.
(1) Some people want to make financial contribution to Amnesty but has no time to spare for the organization. If you live in the U.S., you can become contributing members of Amnesty by calling 1-800-AMNESTY or visiting the web page
If you live outside U.S. you should contact Amnesty section in your country - see
for contact information.
(2) Those who want to be involved through personal actions become Amnesty volunteers. Most volunteers are members of school or community chapters of Amnesty International. If you live in U.S.A., you can check the web page
to find the Regional Office responsible for your state. They will be able to point you to the Amnesty chapter nearest to you. If no Amnesty chapter is close to you, you can join some of the online letter-writing network such as Urgent Action Network, where you get requests for letter-writing actions by electronic mail. For information on the networks, see
