Thursday, March 16, 2023

As part of the Grupo de Trabajo de Agenda CEDAW in Costa Rica, 2021-22 Advocate Larissa Arroyo Navarrete recently coordinated and presented the platform’s shadow report at the 84th session of CEDAW in Geneva in February. Larissa shared: “The Committee mentioned in the final observations to Costa Rica almost all the issues that we raised. I cannot tell you how happy I am and the impact that this will have over the years. All the learning [in the Human Rights Advocates Program] on advocacy, communications, funding, etc. was definitely put to use! It was hard but we achieved even more than we expected.”
