Amnesty Group 384 Eugene Oregon Link to Calender
Amnesty International (AI) is a worldwide Human Rights organization of more than 1.1 million members. Eugene's Amnesty Group 384 is a U.S. chapter of AI that was restarted in the Spring of 2003 by a group of concerned and highly motivated citizens. To date we have hosted or co-hosted talks by Father Roy Bourgeois, M.M. (SOA Watch) & Bert Sacks (Aid to Iraqi children).
Where: 1325 Railroad Blvd., Eugene Oregon - corner of Railroad & North Polk. (Entrance on Polk)
At meetings we write letters on behalf of prisoners of conscience, discuss and give out letter writing materials on Amnesty 'actions' on the behalf of various prisoner and disappearance cases. We are active in bringing speakers and workshop leaders to Eugene and are collaborating with other Eugene peace groups in these activites. We encourage the current membership of Amnesty (now numbering over 800 in Eugene) to join with us in fellowship and support to help build a world of compassion and understanding based on the United Nations declaration of Universal Human Rights. We are always looking for new members and you are warmly invited to attend a meeting.
