Description

Village Voice's Description

Amnesty International serves and involves countless people all over the globe. Founded by a British lawyer in the 1960s, it was expected to be a one-year effort. But when he and his friends found that their idea (to effect change by individually asserting pressure on government authorities) actually worked (!), their group of friends grew and blossomed across national borders and oceans and years. Today, Amnesty spans 162 countries and is composed of more than 1.5 million members. Perhaps more importantly, countless nonprofits and activist groups have followed suit, taking up the British blokeas idea, and have launched sustainable nonprofits and activist groups with various aims all around the world.
