The More You Know

In order to understand and conquer many of the world's injustices, we must educate ourselves first. Amnesty International partnered with EdX, an online educational service providing courses where users can learn a variety of subjects at their own pace, to offer a more intensive instructional opportunity for people wanting a deeper understanding of global abuses and how to defend them. Available in multiple languages, these online courses are a free resource that inspire people around the world to mobilize for change.
