About this group

This group covers the geographic area of Welwyn Hatfield and East Hertfordshire councils.

We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at the Backhouse rooms in Handside lane.(In December its the third Wednesday)

We promote the aims of Amnesty International to the local community through public campaigning events, such as public meetings and town centre demonstrations. 

At our monthly Action Evenings, at the Backhouse Room, 116 Handside lane, WGC AL8 6SZ, we concentrate mainly on letter-writing activities on behalf of Prisoners of Conscience and other individuals at risk. We take part in specific campaigns, such as the Stop Torture campaign and the Stop Violence Against Women and have regular talks on human rights issues.

In addition we organise events throughout the year to raise money for Amnesty's work.

You are welcome to join in any or all of these activities
