The sweet embrace of freedom. A triumphant rescue of human dignity. A jubilant homecoming.
A prisoner of conscience has been released.
When you work for the release of those who are unjustly imprisoned, you are not only defending human rights, you are reuniting families torn apart by discrimination and oppression.
Being unjustly imprisoned is a terrifying ordeal. Dragged from their homes, disappeared, tortured – these men and women are persecuted for who they are, for what they believe, for the peaceful expression of their ideas.
But these prisoners met a massive, global force for good, a group of passionate individuals who shined a light into the darkness and demanded justice. The captors bowed to pressure, opened the prison doors, and set the prisoners free.
That force is you. That light is Amnesty.
This holiday season, celebrate reuniting families with Amnesty.
Because of you, fathers and mothers hold their children again. Sons and daughters live free. Families are made whole.
For prisoners of conscience and others unjustly imprisoned, the opportunity to make new memories with loved ones is a priceless, indescribable gift. Is there a sight more heartwarming than a family reunion like this?
I cherish these moments – they are a joy to behold and inspire all of us here at Amnesty. I hope you agree. After all, when you stood up for their human rights, you brought them home.
I can’t think of a better place to be.
Reconnect with your loved ones. Introduce them to your passion for human rights with the Amnesty reunions holiday e-card.
