Training

The Advocates for Human Rights designs and conducts training on specific human rights topics to provide participants with tools that enable them to be more effective in their work. The Advocates for Human Rights offers training in the following areas:

Discover Human Rights: A Human Rights Approach to Social Justice

This training is designed to help civil society organizations in the United States use human rights principles to combat entrenched poverty, discrimination, and injustice. It provides concrete steps to social justice advocates for integrating international human rights principles into their work from framing the issues to identifying human rights-based strategies to ensure these rights are fulfilled for people. Using a participatory methodology, the training and accompanying manual combines short presentations with interactive activities including large group discussions, small group work, and role playing.

Human Rights Education Training

This training for educators provides tools and techniques on how to integrate HRE methods into the classroom.  Presenters will demonstrate lessons, discuss best practices, and provide resources to enable educators to integrate human rights concepts, issues, and principles into their existing coursework. 

Women's Human Rights Training

The Advocates provides trainings for legal professionals around women's human rights issues including extensive research and reports that monitor domestic violence laws and implementation in partner countries.  Learn more about this work.
