Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
The Advocacy Project (AP) helps marginalized communities to produce social change. This is done by partnering with advocates from the communities themselves. We strongly believe that change must start with those who are directly affected by abuse. AP recruits graduate students (Peace Fellows) to help partners develop information tools and launch campaigns. AP partners can expect to produce information, and develop a network, within as little as three months. More often than not, they will then take action and claim their rights. This, to AP, is the start of social change.
