About this group

The Kent Network seeks to enable all Amnesty activists in Kent, whatever their personal circumstances, to campaign with others to promote and protect human rights throughout the world.  We campaign both online and in person in local areas.  Our Network Teams in Ashford, Dover and Folkestone, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, and Sevenoaks complement the efforts of Amnesty's three Kent-based Local Groups: Maidstone, Medway and Swale; Canterbury; and Thanet.  The Network itself currently has 97 individual members.

Among other things, we seek to:

  • Support and help motivate existing Local Groups, while also promoting activities that may be beyond the capacity of individual Local Groups
  • Respond quickly and countywide to AIUK requests to campaign on an issue
  • Build a sustained relationship with every Kent MP, led by an AI activist who lives within that MP’s constituency
  • Identify opportunities to raise AI’s profile in every constituency and gain support for AI campaigns, e.g. through participation in local events
  • Build sustained contacts with like-minded local organisations throughout the county and pursue opportunities to work together with them
  • Promote closer co-operation between AI Local, Youth and Student Groups and other AI activists in the county
  • Attract new members through local contacts
