Amnesty International is a global human rights organization working on behalf of prisoners of conscience and other victims of human rights abuses around the world. Amnesty’s vision is that every person should enjoy the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.
Group 137 is a local chapter of Amnesty International USA located in San Diego, California. We’ve been around for 50 years and continue to meet twice a month to write letters on urgent actions and plan our events.
We also run the Human Rights Book Discussion meetup group.

Until further notice, we will be cancelling our twice-monthly meetings that are normally held on second and fourth Mondays every month at Mazara Trattoria in South Park.
Please join us for a book discussion of The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming, which is both a travelogue of the near future and a meditation on how that future will look to those living through it—the ways that warming promises to transform global politics, the meaning of technology and nature in the modern world, the sustainability of capitalism and the trajectory of human progress.

Join us for a discussion of White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. This New York Times best-selling book explores the counterproductive reactions white people have when their assumptions about race are challenged, and how these reactions maintain racial inequality.
