Amnesty International launch in Rockingham

AMNESTY International is hosting a Get Active launch meeting in Rockingham.

Amnesty International will be setting up a community group for people interested in campaigning for human rights.

The grassroots activist organisation has action groups all over the world.

Their volunteers stand with more than seven million people in 150 countries who work together for freedom, justice, dignity and equality.

Amnesty WA community organiser Sarah Gooderham said the movement was built on the passion and commitment of their local action groups.

“Everybody is welcome to the Get Active meeting to be a part of this exciting opportunity for the Rockingham community,” she said.

The Get Active will provide an opportunity for those interested in Amnesty’s work to learn more through an information session, and find out how they can participate.

Volunteer Josh Stevenson said Get Active was a chance to set up community group and make sure Amnesty speaks for the human rights concerns of the Rockingham people.
