Leave a gift in your Will
"Only when the last prisoner of conscience has been freed, when the
last torture chamber has been closed, when the United Nations Universal
Declaration of Human Rights is a reality for the world's people, will
our work be done"
Peter Benenson, founder of Amnesty International
At the very core of Amnesty is the belief that the actions of individuals can make a difference. What better way to demonstrate this than by leaving a legacy to us and helping to change the future for the better?Having an up-to-date will is probably one of the most important things you can do to ensure your wishes will be carried out exactly as you wanted. And it's the only way to protect the rights of your children and loved ones.
You can also make a contribution to a future that keeps Amnesty in the picture, fighting for everyone's human rights.
Amnesty is a movement that produces extraordinary results. Prisoners of conscience are released. Death sentences are commuted. Torturers are brought to justice. Governments are persuaded to change their laws and practices.
Our achievements have a huge impact on the lives of individual people. And a gift in your will will make us even stronger in the years ahead.
