Amnesty International aims to end abuses of human rights all across the globe, but tonight, the efforts will be a bit closer to home.

The UI Chapter of Amnesty International will host Jamnesty at the Mill at 9 p.m. today. Jamnesty, the chapter’s largest annual event, will feature the music of No Coast, Mighty Shady, and Item 9 and the Madhatters.

The $5 admission cost will cover food and entertainment and help support FasTrac, a program to assist high-school students with good academic performances and the discovery of successes and strengths, used locally at City High, 1900 Morningside Drive.

The organization has previously held events on campus to promote human rights, such as promoting the abolition of the death penalty, as well as  film screenings and other events. Organizers of Jamnesty said this is the most important event, and they would love for as many people as possible to attend.
