About this group
The Hammersmith and Fulham group was founded in the summer of 1981. In 1993 we proudly set up the first Amnesty Bookshop and reopened recently in its new location in Hammersmith.
We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7.30 pm to 9 pm at Books for Amnesty, 175 King Street, Hammersmith, W6 9JT. The nearest stations are either Hammersmith Station (Hammersmith & City, or District/Piccadilly Underground Lines in the Broadway Centre) or Ravenscourt Park Station.
Currently our monthly meetings are being held online until further notice.
We discuss main campaign themes, sign letters, plan events and have guest speakers from time to time. Meetings are open to all and you can join on the day.
We have a campaign stall regularly outside the Kings Mall shopping centre in King Street. Each stall has a different campaign theme, with letters, cards and petitions to sign. There are usually 3 shifts: 10.45 am- 12,15 pm, 12.15 pm - 1.45 pm and 145 pm -3.15 pm.
If you would like to join the team of campaigners, please email Victoria at SecretaryHammersmithAmnesty@outlook.com
We organise events for fundraising and to promote Amnesty International by holding local or special themed events. Local members are supported with other funding raising events and we are looking to engage local community and school groups.
You may also check our Events page or follow us on twitter @AmnestyHandF for information on our forthcoming events.
