We are the New Forest local group of Amnesty International (AI), a worldwide movement of people who campaign for human rights. Amnesty International aims to promote general awareness of human rights, and to oppose specific abuses of human rights.

Our local group aims to support Amnesty International's work by:

  • Organising meetings to discuss human rights issues and raise awareness
  • Fundraising
  • Writing letters to Prisoners of Conscience and the people responsible for their detention
  • Human rights education and work with young people
  • Working on campaigns on specific issues, organised by Amnesty International
  • Lobbying local MPs and MEPs

Our next event is on Saturday 1st April at 2pm at The Lymington Centre in the Robert Hole Room.

Helen Griffiths of Human Rights Watch will be talking about:

"250 million of the world's children have no access to schooling. How do we deal with the crisis?'

There will be a light lunch beforehand from 1pm.

You can have a look at our annual report to see what we've been doing and our newsletter to see what's coming up.

Our meetings are open to the public, please come and join us.

If you live closer to Southampton than Lymington, then you might also want to consider the Southampton City Group.
