Group 49 – Providence

 

Amnesty International Group 49, the Providence Chapter of Amnesty International, is a local group in Providence, RI.  Our focus is solely on Prisoners of Conscience. Founded in 1976, the group has worked on a great number of cases over the years, including cases of individuals at risk in Pakistan, Uruguay, Libya, Myanmar, Turkey, South Africa, the former Soviet Union, Ukraine, and more.  At the group’s monthly meeting, members discuss ideas for action on their case(s) and sometimes ideas for an event.  Group 49 is well-known for its Global Write-a-Thon, which is held each year in December and traditionally involves special guest speakers.  If you are interested in joining this group or finding out more about Group 49, please contact Marcia Lieberman (marcia.lieberman@gmail.com).
