Amnesty International is a non-governmental organization devoted to the protection of human rights. The organization has chapters across the country and throughout the world. They raise awareness of human right violations, hold rallies and events and encourage people to contact their representatives about taking action.

Shabi Haider is the president of Amnesty International’s Marquette chapter. The chapter recently held its “Write for Rights” event on campus. In the interview above, Haider discusses the organization’s mission and encourages students to join Amnesty’s efforts.
