2020-21 HRAP report

Monday, May 17, 2021

ISHR is happy to release the 2020-21 HRAP report. Congratulations to the advocates who completed the program which was held online over two semesters. Many thanks to all who contributed to the program.

In the 2020-2021 period, the Human Rights Advocates Program proceeded in the midst of the global pandemic - a time in which the work of human rights advocates around the world was increasingly exponentially as a result of the virus. In mid-2020, with the consent of the advocates who had been shortlisted for the HRAP program, the decision was made to hold the program online over two semesters instead of postponing it until the pandemic receded. With six advocates from Georgia, Ghana, India, Jamaica, Mexico, and Nigeria, the program continued ahead despite the challenges imposed on our work. When we made it to the end of the program, ISHR congratulated the advocates who committed themselves to classes, networking, skill-based workshops, speaking engagements, writing opportunities and mentoring opportunities while simultaneously confronting the impact of the pandemic on the communities that they serve and attending to their personal lives. ISHR is grateful to all who contributed to the 2020-21 HRAP.
