Department: Human Rights Advocates ProgramThe Human Rights Advocates Program is now accepting applications for Fall 2020. Founded in 1989, the Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP) is a unique and successful model of human rights capacity building. HRAP capitalizes on its affiliation with Columbia University and its location in New York City to provide grassroots leaders the tools, knowledge, access, and networks to strengthen their organizations and promote human rights. HRAP's comprehensive program of advocacy, networking, skills-building, and academic coursework provides advocates the opportunity to hone practical skills, develop a deeper understanding of human rights, and foster mutually beneficial relationships with organizations and individuals in their fields. Details about the program and activities can be found on the HRAP Overview page and the HRAP Pillars page. You can also read about past participants on the Advocates page.
