Monthly Meetings

Amnesty International Group 365 has over 150 members who receive our monthly newsletter and take action from their homes.  In addition, a faithful core group of these members meets monthly to discuss our current prisoner of conscience cases, learn more about the political situations in our POC's home countries, and strategize on ways to bring attention to their situations.  We welcome new and interested members of the community to join us at a monthly meeting.  Drop in to find out more about what we care about and what we do.

Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month from September through June at The First Church in Watertown, 35 Church Street, Watertown.  We meet in the lower level hall from 7:30- 8:30 pm.  For more information or to RSVP, please contact Sue Kuder at 617-926-7814.

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL BELMONT/WATERTOWN GROUP 365

35 Church Street
Watertown, MA 02472 

Amnesty International is an impartial human rights organization that works in many countries around the world for the unconditional release of all prisoners of conscience and an end to torture and ill-treatment.

*Prisoner of Conscience (POC): a person imprisoned for his or her beliefs, ethnic origin, sex, color, language, or sexual orientation, and has not used nor advocated violence.

 

WHAT WE DO 

Group 365 is one of hundreds of Amnesty International groups that work in local communities to bring attention to issues of human rights abuses worldwide and individual prisoner of conscience cases. 

The group is assigned specific prisoner of conscience cases, each coordinated by a member of the group.   Often working on two or three cases at a time, we continue to work on these cases until they are resolved. 

 

HOW WE DO IT  

We work on cases by learning as much as we can about the country.  We do this through research, inviting speakers, and hosting film showings.  The heart of our action consists of writing letters to government officials in the country of imprisonment and to US officials as well.  Individuals participate at home through a monthly newsletter, on-line, and/or by attending our monthly meetings. 

All interested individuals are welcome.
