Learn about Human Rights with Amnesty NSW's Human Rights Education Series!

Amnesty International NSW invites everyone to attend a 5-part series aimed at teaching you all there is to know about human rights, NGOs, International Law, and Campaigning.

Series information:
(SOLD OUT) Session 1 - NGO's, Society, and You (Wednesday August 3)
What is an NGO? How do they operate? Why are they important? How are they different?

Session 2 - Human Rights Internationally (Wednesday August 10)
What are human rights and what do they mean for us? What International Law is relevant to Australia? What role does Australia play internationally?

Session 3 - Extra! Extra! Read All About It! (Wednesday August 17)
What are campaigns and how do they work?

Session 4 - Campaigning Case Study - Community Is Everything (Wednesday August 24)
Amnesty Australia's biggest campaign for the next four years focuses on Indigenous Youth in detention. So what are issues surrounding this campaign? How can you help?

Session 5 - Campaigning and You! (Wednesday August 31)
So now that you've learnt all there is to know about campaigning, how can you make an impact in your local area? Where do you even start?

Each participant will receive a certificate upon completion of all 5 sessions!

Each session will feature guests from the NGO sector, academics, and local community groups as well as local Amnesty action groups. Workshops will be both theoretical and practical to ensure participants are equipped with the real life skills they need to be an Amnesty activist in their local area.

The sessions are open to all ages.
