Location Somerville, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction Get on the Bus for Human Rights (GOTB) is an annual day of human rights education and activism organized by Amnesty International Group 133 of Somerville, MA and a dedicated team of volunteer community organizers. GOTB began as a day trip to the United Nations in 1996 by 30 group members. We are now 1,500 participants riding buses, commuter trains, and carpooling down to New York City. We are students and activists from all over the Northeast taking peaceful action in support of human rights by protesting and garnering attention at relevant embassies, missions and corporate headquarters.
