We believe that every individual act wields the power to change the larger narrative. Answer the call to defend people under immediate threat of grave human rights abuse. Your actions could help bring justice to riot survivors, change laws to end impunity violence against women, hold corporates accountable, empower marginalised communities, or release people who have been jailed just for speaking up. Amnesty International India’s strength is a community of people just like you who take action— send letters, emails, sign petitions, make calls and tweets–on emergency cases of human rights abuses across India, and the world.
