American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Amnesty International has finally taken on the prison-industrial complex in the United States in its "Rights for All" campaign. A core segment of its message has been how the war on drugs contributes to human rights abuses of prisoners. These are courageous steps for AI to take, both because attacking the U.S. as a human rights violator can alienate its U.S. members and because any dissension encourages ideological opponents to attack AI's work. To let Amnesty International know their work is valuable and supported, please send a message from this November Coalition site.
