Activism leadership committees

ALCs help motivate, coordinate and develop local human rights activism. They mentor and support activists and action groups, and participate in consultations on our vision, campaign priorities and policies. They are at the centre of our work promoting human rights and challenging injustice.

ALCs have up to 12 members. Terms are for 2 years, which are staggered – this means that half of the ALC are elected for two years in an even year, with the other half being elected in odd years.

*If unsure about which Amnesty Region you are a member of, please refer to clause 11.8 (b) of the Constitution which lists the postcode ranges for each Region.
