Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA, talks about her work as an advocate for human rights and racial justice. Ai Weiwei has teamed with Amnesty International in the past to advance various human rights issues, including last year’s worldwide campaign against cyber censorship. In 2015, the organization presented Ai with the Ambassador of Conscience Award, its top award for human rights. Huang is responsible for advancing the vision and mission of the organization, working with Members of Congress, the United Nations, and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
