When it comes to speaking out for human rights and bringing rights violators to justice, Amnesty International USA’s student and youth members are on the frontlines! Amnesty International’s Student Program is an excellent, engaging way for young people to learn about human rights issues, educate peers and the greater community about these issues, and take direct action. Our vibrant student and youth groups undertake actions form public demonstrations and letter writing, to teach-ins and meeting with elected officials. Rhode Island is home to six college and high school groups who work on a variety of issues under the leadership of the Student Area Coordinator. Make an impact and join these youth activists. There is no better way to become involved in global issues than to organize or join a student group on your campus. In doing so, you will be on your way to shining the light on human rights and becoming an important part of Amnesty International movement in Rhode Island!
