Are you ready for a challenge in 2020? We are looking for people to take on a sponsored challenge (a run, a walk, a swim, a jump?!) and fuel our fight for justice on death row. Are you up for it?

Sponsor the Amicus Avengers as they participate in the Royal Parks Half Marathon in support of those on death row! 

The 'Amicus Avengers' team of four fierce runners take on the Royal Parks Half in October! Support us to get through this (half) marathon task, as we run to save lives!

Amicus is a small charity that helps provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the United States. We believe the death penalty is disproportionately imposed on the most vulnerable in society; violating their right to due process and equal justice before the law. Our aims are to provide better access to justice and to raise awareness of potential abuses of defendants' rights. We are not a campaigning organisation. We believe we can make the greatest difference through frontline work.

This has been a difficult time for us all and none more than defendants on death row, who have been deprived of access to their legal representatives and are subject to poor sanitisation procedures. This in addition to the expediting of executions under Trump's regime.

Support our team running this half marathon and you are supporting these defendants' rightful access to justice and fair trial. Help Amicus save lives.

Why should I fundraise for Amicus?

We are a tiny charity, punching well above our weight in what we do. This means that we can't offer the free t-shirts and flags that other charities can for these type of events - we can't even afford to purchase places in races. If you run/cycle/swim for us, you'll be doing so in the knowledge that every pound you raise will make a huge difference to what we can do next year.
 

Can I set up a fundraising page?

Sure thing! We use JustGiving - you can view our page here.
 

I've got an idea... but I'm not sure about it...

Please get in touch with us. We'd love to hear what you've got to say! 
 

Calling eager lawyers!

We are looking for reps in law firms to coordinate challenge events with your colleagues. If you are interested in this pro bono position, please get in touch.
