Amnesty International meetings

Far away from the SmartBoards and laptop carts of Judge, people are suffering. Whether it's prisoners in Argentina or impoverished children here in the U.S. all people need food, shelter, and justice. But Amnesty International is here to change all that.

With over 2.2 million members in over 150 countries worldwide, AI is nonviolently attacking injustice around the globe. With the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights as their guide, their millions of volunteers come together to promote and protect human rights.

All this might seem far away from your Judge classroom, but it isn't. Every Wednesday morning in the Campus Ministry room members of the Judge chapter meet. You can have donuts, juice, and help change the world – all before school starts.
