Welcome to Human Rights Advocacy 101

Human beings can fully thrive when the policies, systems and laws they interact with safeguard their human rights, honor their basic human needs, celebrate human diversity, and ensure accessibility and inclusion for all people. Human Rights Advocacy 101 empowers learners with information and tools to engage in human-centered, person-first, trauma-informed, empowerment-based human rights advocacy strategies on behalf of themselves and others.

Human Rights Advocacy 101 covers six key topics for effective human rights advocacy, including the Role of Human Rights Advocates; Knowledge of Human Rights; Understanding the Cycle of Oppression; Human Rights Advocacy Strategies; Building a Human Rights Agenda; and Self-Care for Human Rights Advocates. It’s generally recommended to view the topics in that order, though learners are free to explore and revisit topics at any time.
