About this group
Welcome to the Woking local group of Amnesty International UK.
We meet on the first Monday of each month at 8pm, at Trinity Methodist Church, Brewery Road, Woking.
The exceptions are in May, where the Bank Holiday moves our meeting to the second Monday, and in August where we take a summer break. The date of Easter may also move our April meeting, but all dates are given on this site.
Some parking is available at the church and more is available at the Brewery Road car park.
Meetings last about 90 minutes. We use these to plan street collections, public campaigns and discuss other activities in order to create an awareness of violations of human rights around the world.
We participate in campaigns such as Women’s Rights in Afghanistan, the Zimbabwe elections, and the Peace Community of San José, as well as campaigning for individuals at risk, and a prisoner of conscience chosen by the local group.
We also raise specific cases and issues of concern with our MP and press for legislative changes where appropriate.
If you are still curious about what a local group does, you will find some of your questions answered on our our frequently asked questions (FAQ) page.
