Amnesty International is a non-governmental organisation that is campaigning for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. Particular focus on:
– abolition of the death penalty
– freedom of expression
– rights of refugees and asylum seekers
– prisoners of conscience
Refugees and people seeking asylum know better than anyone what issues they face. The VOICES Network is a British Red Cross initiative that brings together VOICES ambassadors: experts-by-experience on refugee and asylum issues in the UK.
With training and support, VOICES ambassadors work together to speak out about issues that affect refugees and asylum seekers. Sharing their own experiences, they advocate to change policy, use the media to change points of view and help the Red Cross improve our services through expert feedback.
