This term Cambridge University Amnesty International Society is focusing on the BRAVE campaign. This campaign supports human rights defenders who face harassment, imprisonment and even death for standing up for human rights. Throughout the term we’ll be finding out more about the BRAVE campaign, learning about the most effective ways to campaign and creating our own campaign.
There will be a meeting every week 5-6PM on Sunday and we have a fantastic speakers’ event Protest and Privilege. There will also be lots of opportunities to socialise with a bar quiz and our termly open mic night known as Jamnesty.
