Amnesty International UK Speakers are available to run free refugee rights workshops, lessons, assemblies and can contribute to whole day events in your primary or secondary school. Amnesty Speakers are trained volunteers who bring experience, knowledge and energy to educating students about the rights of refugees and who are able to facilitate students taking action for refugee rights as part of Amnesty International’s I Welcome campaign. Our Speakers will work with you to cater the visit to the needs of your students.

As Amnesty Speakers are volunteers Amnesty International UK asks that you cover travel expenses where possible.
