Our Advocates

Between 1989 and 2016, a total of 317 human rights advocates from 88 countries attended HRAP. In recent years, advocates have ranged from early career advocates who have cut their teeth in very urgent human rights situations to mid-career advocates who have founded organizations.

Below are the biographies of current Advocates and descriptions by select alumni as to why they became human rights advocates.
