The Human Rights Advocates Program's 2016 Annual Program Report is now available.
The 2016 cohort—which represented the 28th class of HRAP—hailed from Armenia, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, El Salvador, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. While in HRAP, the Advocates attended graduate-level courses, strengthened their skill set through workshops led by staff from organizations including Human Rights Watch and WITNESS, consulted with their faculty mentors, and networked with the human rights, academic and donor communities, primarily in NYC and Washington, D.C. They shared and deepened their expertise on a number of issues including LGBT rights, the security and rights of children in armed conflict, refugee rights, trauma, transitional justice, and indigenous peoples' rights.
Together the 2016 HRAP cohort of nine advocates shared and deepened their expertise on a number of issues including gender, LGBT rights, transitional justice, torture, corporate accountability, and Indigenous rights. They are now members of the HRAP alumni body, which has 308 advocates in 88 countries.
