Who are Amnesty International?

Amnesty International is a movement of ordinary people from across the world standing up for humanity and human rights. Our purpose is to protect individuals wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied. At Exeter University Amnesty International Society you can learn how to make a difference and meet like-minded people passionate about defending human rights.

Get Involved

As a society at Exeter and part of Amnesty International UK we want to make a change. We do this by running all sorts of different events, and we'd love you to get involved!

  • Weekly Meetings - Wednesdays at 1pm. Here we meet up to discuss current issues and plan our campaigns.
