OUR COMMITTEES

Editorial Committee

The editorial committee is ideal for – anyone who is interested in the current news; anyone who has a passion for written word; anyone who wants to inform others on the injustices that are happening around the world. 

You will be digging into new (and old) events about important stories within the human-rights world. You can write all sorts of articles concerning things that you find interesting that are happening right now!

Moreover, you have the freedom to decide how you get this information across: newsletter, website, blog, podcast – or any other idea which you may have! Hence, the editorial committee fulfils your creative outlet while at the same time helping other people understand what is happening globally related to human rights! 

The editorial committee can be a very flexible one, meaning there is much room for freedom, growth but also collaboration and structure! If this sounds like an experience you’d like to have – sign-up for this committee now!

Write4Rights Committee

Are you excited to become part of a fun group of people? Want to make a change in these difficult times? Want to be part of the worlds biggest human rights event?

If you join the Action committee you’ll be part of the organization of the Write for Rights in Utrecht this semester, and the Women’s March or spring festival next semester.

‘Write for Rights’ is the world’s biggest human rights event, and every December, supporters across the globe write hundreds of thousands of letters, send thousands of solidarity cards, sign thousands of petitions and many other kinds of action – all calling for justice for those whose human rights are being attacked. And every year, thanks to the letters, people wrongfully imprisoned are released, torturers are brought to justice and people in prison are treated more humanely.

We need your help to organize this, and other events next semester!

You can join this committee for a half year, or a full year, so perfect if you’re here on exchange, or plan to go on exchange next semester.

Charity Committee

Organizing two of AISU’s most fun events and contributing to a good cause by raising money is what the Charity Committee is all about! If this sounds exciting to you, do not hesitate to sign up for this committee.

In the Charity Committee you’ll be working with a diverse group of people trying to achieve a higher goal. Raising money for the various causes AISU, and Amnesty International as a whole, strive for. This will be done by running fundraisers, going door-to-door during the international fundraising week in March and everything else you can come up with.

The Committee’s main focus is on the organizing of two major AISU events: a Charity gala and a charity concert. If you’re ready to dive into the world of fundraising and want to make a change by helping AISU and Amnesty International by raising money, then this is the committee for you!

Equality Committee

“Equal rights for everyone!”

Is this something you are passionate about? In this committee you are totally free to fight for equality in whatever way you’d like. 

There are many aspects of equality that desperately need attention. Think of gender inequality, racism, discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community and more. During your time in the committee you will be shedding light on these problems. 

You can organise workshops, lectures, discussions and so much more. So are you creative, driven and passionate about human rights? Don’t hesitate to apply! 

Climate Crisis Committee

Our current climate crisis is a very pressing subject for our generation. We know our planet is being destroyed. But do you also know how the climate crisis is affecting human rights?

The purpose of this committee is to raise awareness for the way this climate crisis is violating human rights. Because by hurting our planet, there are also people who suffer more than others. 

You’ll be working together with a group of people  who are also passionate about sustainability. You can do this in whatever way suits you. Creativity is highly appreciated!

So do you have a combined interest in both human rights and sustainability? Then this is the perfect challenge for you. 

You can apply to be part of a committee through the following link until the 26th of September at midnight: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfbwKHYuf62ZEv_YOr4woby3H5xds7rphW9aUf8Ms5Xao82gw/viewform?usp=sf_link
