Forgot to mention it, but Amnesty International hit their 50 year mark.
Despite my issues with how it is run, they are an incredible organization that does essential work preventing torture, freeing political prisoners, working to abolish the death penalty and making sure the human rights of all peoples are respected. They deserve your support. The world was a much darker place 50 years ago. Happy Birthday Amnesty.
