Urgent Action Network
AI was founded on the principle that by writing a letter, one could save a life. The Urgent Action Network carries on this work today. UA participants receive timely information on prisoners of conscience who need help right now. They write letters to bring attention and publicity to their cases. AI groups, church groups, schools, professional groups, and individuals all participate in the Urgent Action Network.
Amnesty International USA features three cases per month as part of the Freedom Writers network. Get case information online, write a letter today, and make a difference.
Prisoners of Conscience
A "prisoner of conscience" is someone imprisoned solely for the peaceful expression of their beliefs.
