There are many different types of amnesty organizations, or human rights organizations, throughout the entire world. Many of these organizations help illegal immigrants who have not been treated fairly. These are non-governmental organizations that make it their mission to protect the human rights of people all over the world. These organizations have done great work over the years, and will continue to fight for people’s rights. Amnesty and human rights organizations can however also be government institutions. The United Nations runs some human rights organizations as does the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor. Amnesty and human rights organizations can be, as mentioned, also be nongovernmental, for example Amnesty International USA and Human Rights Watch. The goal with most amnesty and human rights organizations is to protect human rights and to end human rights abuses. Another goal is for example in the U.S to help illegal immigrants become legal citizens.Download US Amnesty Information Guide

Human Rights Watch is a nongovernmental organization that defends people's rights around the world. By exposing injustices and abuses, the organization raises awareness and pressures those in power to respect human rights. Humanitarian law guides this group.
