I’ve recorded a short message to express my gratitude and to share some of the highlights and challenges from the last year.

Throughout the challenges and crises of this year, the Amnesty International movement has risen to the occasion with unwavering determination. Whether you generously supported our essential work with a donation or used your voice and signature to advocate for change, I am profoundly grateful to stand beside you on our collective journey to end injustice and safeguard human rights.

We still have work to do and there will be more for us to take on in the year ahead, but today I just want to say thanks and share more about the impact of your support.

The power of this movement comes from people across the globe speaking out for others they may never know – for the human rights that bind us together.

On behalf of the entire Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand whānau, thank you for everything you’ve done to stand with humanity this year. We wish you a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season.
