About Us

Amnesty International at the University of Toronto (AIUofT) is a student-based chapter of Amnesty International, a worldwide nonprofit organization which advocates for the promotion and protection of human rights. Amnesty International has no political, governmental, or corporate affiliation, but strives to achieve the universal respect of human rights by targeting specific cases of human rights violations and raising public awareness. The AIUofT chapter mission is to bring awareness to students, faculty, and alumni about human rights violations around the world and how they can contribute to the campaign and discussion for universal human rights.
