AI@50: International "Toast to Freedom" Event

In 2011, we will be 50 years old and what better way to celebrate and kick off a year of events than with a global Toast to Freedom. It directly connects our 50th anniversary to our foundations and tells our story from 1961 to today.
The Toast to Freedom event will take place simultaneously around the globe with many countries taking part and making the event their own.
However, the toast must be more than a brief gesture or moment in time with no longer lasting impacts for human rights. The toast should be communicated as a toast to ‘freedom from fear and freedom from want’ and is also a chance for AI to launch a global action – calling for people to take a stand and take action for human rights in 2011.
