The Centre for the Human Rights of Imprisoned People (CHRIP) is running its 6th annual Effective Advocacy and Activism Training Program in 2014. The program is open to all legal and non-legal advocates and community members, and has a focus on individual and systemic advocacy around prison human rights issues.
The Effective Advocacy and Activism Training program has been designed with legal and non-legal advocates and community members in mind. The sessions have a focus on increasing our capacity to undertake individual and systemic advocacy that upholds the rights of criminalised and incarcerated people. In particular, they reflect our concern with the nexus between homelessness, drug and alcohol use and criminalisation.
