SLAVERY IS NOT HISTORY...YET!
Group 22 "dresses up" and marches in the Doo Dah Parade to protest human trafficking (modern-day slavery).

Visit our Doo-Dah 2009 page for story and photos!

Our 2008 entry was Waterboardin' USA (photo at right). We've missed only three parades since 1998. See our Doo-Dah pages for 1998, 1999, 2005 and 2008. See our Facebook page (see sidebar) for pix of our 2011 entry.


Welcome to Amnesty International Group 22
in Pasadena, California

Group 22 is one of many local affiliates of Amnesty International USA, which in turn is the United States national section of the worldwide Amnesty International movement. Founded in 1961, AI works impartially for the release of all prisoners of conscience, fair and prompt trials for political prisoners, and an end to torture and executions (for further information, see the brief history and description and the text of the definition of human rights). Group 22 is both a registered student group at Caltech and a community local group for the Pasadena area. 

New members are always welcome!
Simply show up any of our events listed below. Our monthly meetings or letter-writing sessions are especially good places to start. See the map for directions.

AI Group 22 Upcoming Events

Tuesday, November 11, 7:30 PM. Letter-writing Meeting. (2nd Tuesday of every month.) We will meet in the Rathskeller of the Caltech Athenaeum (NW corner of Hill and California, in Pasadena -- see map in the sidebar). The Rathskeller is in the Athenaeum basement; take the stairs to the right of the main entrance. Look for the table with the Amnesty sign. Please join us to write actions on human-rights violations around the world. We also spend some time just talking about whatever we feel like. This informal gathering is a great way for newcomers to get acquainted with Amnesty!

Sunday, November 16, 5:30 PM. Human Rights Book Discussion Group. (usually 3rd Sunday of every month). Normally we meet at Vroman's Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, on the second floor. But Vroman's notified us that they will close the store early on Nov 16 at 7pm for holiday preparations. So we will meet an hour early at 5:30. They are also having an author event that evening so they have arranged for us to meet in an alternate location, Vroman's Room 120, located next door in the Atrium at 709 E. Colorado Blvd., Suite 120. All are welcome, even if you haven't read the book. You can buy the book at a 20% discount if you get it at "Will Call" at Vroman's and mention our book group. For November we are reading "Crossing Mandelbaum Gate" by Kai Bird. See the current (October) newsletter for a review.

Thursday, November 27. NO MONTHLY MEETING. Happy Thanksgiving!
