    Why become an Amnesty International Fieldworker? Have you been involved with Amnesty for 6 months or more? Are you looking for ways to promote human rights work in your community beyond signing petitions and writing letters? Are you looking for a new challenge? Join us!

    My name is Tosha Mallette and I am an Amnesty member at my local group in Vernon, B.C, as well as the Co-Chair of the Fieldworker Coordinating Committee. I really enjoy documentaries and learning about the world and the issues we face. Learning about a problem is always the first step I take in my activism, but I also recognize that it’s also important to take action on what I’ve learned. This approach of education informing action is what brought me to Amnesty International and to the Fieldworker Program.

    Are you already involved with Amnesty and looking for the next step in your activism journey? We invite you to consider joining the Fieldworkers! 

    Fieldwork is a great way to be involved in activism because we have the ability to shape our human rights work and be involved in our communities in a way that makes sense. As Fieldworkers, we are catalysts of activism and we work to support activists near us to take action on human rights issues. We can do this by writing letters with local groups and helping to support the projects that activists are taking on in their communities.

    Fieldworkers, like Gord and Crystal in Regina, Saskatchewan, support groups in their human rights actions and provide leadership for folks who want to defend human rights.

    Fieldworkers serve as key resources and work to educate Amnesty members as well as the public on human rights issues and Amnesty campaigns. Shelley is a Fieldworker in Calgary, Alberta, fresh out of training with keen skills for learning new things and teaching others.
