About Amnesty at Adelphi:
Amnesty International is a human rights organization that focuses on raising awareness about, preventing, and stopping human rights abuses that occur around the world. The chapter at Adelphi is very involved in causes including Invisible Children, Save Darfur, Global Goods Partners and others. We have raised thousands of dollars for various causes, and brought attention to issues involving Fair Trade and Women’s Rights. Among the various ways to raise awareness about human rights, music has been a particularly powerful medium. Musicians around the globe have been active in the human rights movement for decades, including U2, Fall Out Boy, Audio Slave, the Killers, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Dashboard Confessionals, Greenday, Jack’s Mannequin, Jane’s Addiction, Maroon 5, Nickelback, Rage Against the Machine, REM, Serj Tankian, Sting, System of a Down, The Cure, The Police, etc. The bands that have volunteered to play at our event will be performing covers and well as original songs that highlight the human rights issues addressed by Amnesty.
