Power the change by becoming a

member of Amnesty! 

Ready to stand up and defend equality, freedom and justice for all? Believe in people power? Eager to use your passion for human rights to help shape our movement? 

Apply to become an Amnesty member today and use the collective power of our member community to challenge injustice

Being a member is different to making a regular donation. For a small, once-yearly fee of $22, you gain access to the biggest human rights community in Australia. We welcome you to meet like-minded people, stand for board positions, join committees and feed into the overall direction of Amnesty. You can even feed into Amnesty’s global decisions! Are you time poor but still want to be an integral part of this Movement? The unique benefit of a membership with Amnesty is the flexibility to participate as much or as little as you are able to. If you already stand for equality, freedom and justice, this community is your community!
Our members are the heart of our Movement. We need more caring and compassionate people like you to ensure that we continue to challenge human rights abuses at home and worldwide. By becoming a member, you are continuing to power the change in the face of human rights injustices.


What added impact can I have as a member?

As an Amnesty member, you get to join a community that helps influence where we focus our campaigning efforts to achieve the maximum impact in defending human rights across Australia. For example, in 2017 members were the driving force behind making our calls for a ‘Human Rights Act’ a priority. This is now included in all of our campaigns and media releases.

As a member, you will:

  • Have access to our Members Community platform where you can network, socialise, mobilise and consult with other members and the organisation
  • Receive a members-only welcome pack with premium Amnesty merchandise,
  • Have access to members-only events,
  • Attend our Activism Forum,
  • Be first to receive invitations to broader Amnesty events.

You can also:

  • Stand and vote* for General Meeting Voter positions and, if elected, vote at the Annual General Meeting,
  • Stand and vote* for Activism Leadership Committee positions,
  • Stand for the Amnesty International Australia Board of Directors and our Board Committee positions

Most importantly, you will join thousands of other caring and compassionate people in amplifying our voice against human rights injustices and our members are critical in this fight.

For only $22 a year, power the change by becoming a member today. You'll be playing an active part in standing strong against injustice alongside 7 million other people just like yourself across the globe – that’s a lot of people power! All we ask is that all of our members agree to our Values and Behaviours and Member Undertaking to participate in our Movement. 

If you take up membership and don't receive a confirmation within 5 days, please email
