Amnesty International Berry Local Action Group
We are a group of volunteers and activists from the Berry and Kangaroo Valley localities concerned about refugee and asylum seeker issues. Amnesty International is a global initiative, fighting for human rights and social justice. Living in a small town, we believe spreading awareness about global and community issues is imperative. We do not take a party political stance in our work, with our concerns being focussed on the upholding of human rights conventions and legislation.
Everybody is welcome to join and your voice is valued. We ask for reasoned debate and for no abusive or racist comments.
