Political Activism

Search for Common Ground

Search for Common Ground, founded in 1982, is an international non-governmental organization that works to transform the way the world deals with conflict: away from adversarial approaches, toward cooperative solutions.

Amnesty International

Amnesty International is a worldwide movement that works to promote all the human rights by campaigning to free all prisoners of conscience; ensure fair and prompt trials for political prisoners; abolish the death penalty, torture and other cruel treatment of prisoners; end political killings and “disappearances”; and to oppose human rights abuses by opposition groups. Activities range from public demonstrations to letter writing, from human rights education to fundraising concerts, from individual appeals on a particular case to global campaigns on a particular issue.
