Among other career highlights, he oversaw production of a holiday compilation album which in 2006 was the number-one selling music album in the world. In the midst of his success, Bruce Furst is also able to support charity work and is a member of Amnesty International.
Amnesty International is a worldwide organization made up of over 7 million people that strives to protect human rights. There are three basic ways to get involved with Amnesty International’s global movement. Becoming a member involves directly advocating with policymakers to protect human rights and help them develop and enact new policies. Additionally, USA Legislative Coordinator volunteers work with Amnesty International staff and members in lobbying key officials to protect human rights. Members can also volunteer for several types of leadership positions, depending on skills.
For people who want to help but have limited time to spare, there are opportunities to support members in local groups, joining in their efforts to work on human rights issues in their community and perform media outreach. They can also attend peaceful protests, vigils, and other types of events throughout the United States. Even less time is required of those who simply desire to take quick action in ways that include writing letters and signing petitions.
With over 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Bruce Furst boasts significant expertise in film and music licensing.
