In Ads, Campaign on September 16, 2008 at 7:01 pm

Amnesty International (commonly known as Amnesty or AI) is an international non-governmental organization which defines its mission as “to conduct research and generate action to prevent and end grave abuses of human rights and to demand justice for those whose rights have been violated.
