THE PATRICK STEWART NETWORK


Please join Patrick Stewart in his support of these worthwhile charities and activities:

Amnesty International

Amnesty International - Amnesty International is dedicated to freeing prisoners of conscience, gaining fair trials for political prisoners, ending torture, political killings and "disappearances," and abolishing the death penalty throughout the world. Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) is the U.S. Section of Amnesty International.

Patrick Stewart Human Rights Scholarship - The Patrick Stewart Human Rights Scholarship offers a unique opportunity for students like you to gain practical experience in the field of human rights. Amnesty International USA awards these scholarships to student activists for summer internships or other short-term human rights projects. Ranging from $300 to $1,800, scholarships can be used for travel, materials, and other expenses.

 
ACTER

Actors from the London Stage - Patrick is a founding director of "Actors from the London Stage" (formerly ACTER). From its inception, Actors From The London Stage has had an idealistic goal: to change the way Shakespeare is taught in the U.S. Students in literature classes rarely read Shakespeare out loud or consider the text as a working script for actors. By bringing talented, articulate actors into the humanities classroom to do scene work with students or to show them how they, as actors, approach a literary text, Actors From The London Stage hopes to forge a stronger alliance between the theatre and the academy and to develop an enthusiasm for Shakespeare in performance.

 
Refuge

Refuge - is the largest single provider of emergency accommodation and support to women and children escaping domestic violence in England. Domestic violence takes lives and ruins lives. Two women are killed every week by a current or former partner in England and Wales. Each week ten women commit suicide as a means of escaping domestic violence. Children are also affected; in fact, over two thirds of Refuge's residents are children. On any one day Refuge supports over 1,000 women and children through its refuges and community outreach schemes. It provides support for children, helping them to overcome the horrific trauma of witnessing or experiencing domestic violence; counselling for abused women; a team of independent legal advocates and specialist services for women from minority ethnic communities. Refuge's political lobbying has been instrumental to the shift in the legal understanding of domestic violence and it also challenges social attitudes through award-winning public education campaigns.

 
Ocean Alliance

Ocean Alliance - The Ocean Alliance encompasses the Whale Conservation Institute and the Voyage of the Odyssey and is dedicated to the conservation of whales and their ocean environment.

 
Doctors Without Borders
 

Doctors Without Borders - Médecins Sans Frontières (also known as Doctors Without Borders or MSF) delivers emergency aid to victims of armed conflict, epidemics, and natural and man-made disasters, and to others who lack health care due to social or geographical isolation.
