The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy invites you to join a workshop on human rights advocacy! The workshop is convened and moderated by Elisa Massimino, Former President of Human Rights First & Senior Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy.

Description:

Human rights advocacy can often seem a bit quixotic. But progress is possible. The problems we tackle need serious, hard-nosed strategies and activists with the skills to execute them. In this study group, we’ll explore key elements of successful human rights advocacy campaigns—goal-setting, communications, coalition-building—and practical skills advocates need, especially in today’s politically polarized environment, to win.
