In 2018, Amnesty International and Access Now launched the Toronto Declaration, a landmark statement on the impact of machine learning systems on the right to equality and nondiscrimination. "Created by over 30 experts from human rights and civil liberties groups, academics, lawyers, and tech policy-makers, the Declaration is a call to action for governments and companies to each meet their existing responsibilities to safeguard human rights, as per international human rights law and standards" The Amnesty Tech collective works to ensure that "technology puts people and human rights first."
