This is the cruel fate that Amal is facing in Sudan. She’s only 20 years old, and a judge decided she deserved to be tortured to death for adultery in the first stoning sentence in a decade.
But there is still hope: Amal has appealed the verdict, and the court could overturn the sentence and save her life.
There’s no time to waste: Amal is stuck in jail until the court decides her fate -- so let’s shine a bright spotlight on her case with a global show of solidarity and outrage. Add your name now and when it’s massive, we’ll take our call directly to key governments Sudan is trying to court, so they demand Amal's release. Sign now and share with everyone.
Avaaz is backing a civil society coalition for Amal's release and the abolition of stoning in Sudan:
- International Federation for Human rights (FIDH)
- The African Center for Justice and Peace Studies (ACJPS)
- Sudan Human Rights Monitor (SHRM)
