Amnesty International's Double donations end Sunday

Double donations end Sunday

Dear KDTN Radio One,

All this month, artists and human rights activists like me have proudly raised our voices to defend human rights with Amnesty International.

Now, it's your turn.

Sunday is your last chance to double your gift.Please join me by becoming a member of Amnesty International right now.

Your gift matters – collective action releases people from prison, torture and execution:
"I don't regret a single moment. I celebrate the work that I do and the people I work with...We are in it together."
That's Jenni Williams, the inspiring co-founder of Women and Men of Zimbabwe Arise. She's been arrested 43 times and been beaten severely for defending human rights in her country. Jenni credits Amnesty International members with saving her life multiple times.

Jenni is right – we're in this together to shine a bright light on the horrific acts of violence committed by Syrian security forces against their own people, in the hopeswe can help end the atrocities.

We're in this to fervently declare love a right, not a wrong, and work to overturn the discriminatory "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA).

We're wholeheartedly taking part in this because we refuse to yield to oppression and to hate, and we will not let slip our hard-fought gains.

With the world facing unprecedented assaults on human rights, Amnesty's mission is more relevant and urgent than ever.

Your membership today will help Amnesty rise to these challenges. Join us.

Very truly yours,
Joan Baez

P.S. Amnesty is so close to meeting its goal of inspiring 50,000 gifts this month. Donate before midnight on Sunday and a generous donor will automatically double your gift.


Become a monthly donor in September to receive Amnesty’s amazing tribute album, "Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International." 

This "jaw-dropping" compilation of songs from 80 influential musicians is a testament to music’s power to transcend boundaries — just like Amnesty.

Do you want to double your impact? Make a donation to Amnesty before September 30 and your gift will be matched.*
