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 was established as 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.

For further information contact: aigp22@caltech.edu
