How to Advocate Effectively in Geneva and Stateside for the UPR

Wed Mar 11, 2015 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm
United States
Do you know what you need to do between now and the U.S. in-person dialogue with the Human Rights Council in May?

No? …then join USHRN Coordinating Center staff and the UPR Taskforce for a free webinar on how to advocate effectively in Geneva and here in the U.S. for the upcoming Universal Periodic Review (UPR). The webinar will cover the broad strategy for maximizing your advocacy in March and May, provide an introduction to Geneva and what you will need to plan your travels, present opportunities to engage for those remaining in the U.S., and share successful examples of lobbying in Geneva and the U.S.

Our knowledgeable speakers will also discuss the most effective lobbying strategies with diplomats, share details of other opportunities to connect with UN officials while in Geneva, and present ways to get your one-pager to Geneva even if you will not be there.

Yes! …then you still need to join this call. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for any advocate participating in the UPR process.
