What We Do

Monthly Meetings

At our meetings we write letters, discuss current human rights business, plan our events, and will have guest speakers or show human rights documentaries.

We meet at the Irvine United Congregational Church in the Peace Room (the room next to the sanctuary), on the last Tuesday of every month at 19:15 (7:15 P.M.).

Action File

Esmail AbdiIran: Union Activists

Our current action file concerns trade union members in Iran: Esmail Abdi (teacher), and bus driver's union members Reza Shahabi, Ebrahim Madadi and Davoud Razavi. They are either imprisoned or in liberty pending appeal. The Iranian Government has banned independent trade unions and does not recognise the right of workers to strike.

Please help us support these workers unjustly imprisoned.

December 2018

Every December, Amnesty International groups throughout the world join in a special holiday action to write letters for human rights cases and send cards to individual prisoners of conscience. Join us for our local 2018 Write 4 Rights public event on Sunday 9 December!
