The Advocacy Project

Administration publique

The Advocacy Project, was established in 1998 to help marginalized communities and their advocates take action against injustice. We undertook our first project in 1998, when we produced an online report from the Rome Conference to establish the International Criminal Court. 

We define communities broadly, and are particularly drawn to those that are despised and friendless. This has led us to support – among others – Roma, Travellers, Dalit, pygmies, waste-pickers, and river gypsies. We take their side because it is the right thing to do, but also because they can produce gifted advocates who can mobilize large numbers of people to make the case for real change.

After being approached by a community, we form a partnership with advocates who emerged from the community and know the issues intimately.  Over the years we have worked with over 100 community-based partners, and we hope that most will eventually have a page on this website. For the moment, we are focusing on current partners. 

The next step is to recruit a volunteer (Peace Fellow) who can help the partner organization to tell its story through a website, social media, video, photos and advocacy quilts. Our goal in these early stages is to help the partner acquire advocacy tools which will help them to take action.

From the beginning, our work has been guided by committed Board members. These have included distinguished advocates, including Suvash Darnal (photo) who founded the Jagaran Media Center in Nepal. We continue to mourn the tragic death of Suvash from a car accident in 2011. We are also fortunate to be able to draw on a large number of volunteers and interns and are deeply indebted to the many individuals and institutions that have supported us through the years. 

It has been a wonderful fifteen years. We have remained true to our core mission, which is to help vulnerable communities speak out and take action. But we must be alive to new possibilities. In 1998, it was the Internet. In 2013 it was advocacy quilting. Tomorrow, who knows? Let the adventure continue.
