Over the past 30 years, Urgent Action network members have helped to save thousands of lives by stopping torture, preventing executions and protecting human rights defenders.

The Gift

Pay for a month’s worth of messages to be sent as part of an Urgent Action campaign to save someone in imminent danger of torture or facing death. Amnesty International's global Urgent Action network provides an effective and rapid means of preventing some of the most life-threatening human rights violations against individuals. As soon as Amnesty learns that a person is in danger of human rights abuse, we alert members of the Network in over 70 countries. Network members then compose and send letters, e-mails, faxes and telegrams to the officials - whether presidents or prison governors - who have the power to stop the abuse. Over the following hours, days and weeks, these officials receive thousands of individual messages. These are a powerful signal that their actions are being witnessed by an international audience concerned about the fate of those involved.
