2015 Fellows

The Advocacy Project recruited 10 fellows to work with our partner organizations this summer in Mali, Uganda, Morocco, Palestine, Nepal, Vietnam, Bosnia, and Peru. From June through August 2015, the peace fellows provided 10 weeks of supportive services in advocacy and capacity building to community-based organizations focused on human rights and empowerment of traditionally marginalized groups. They had taken on a wide spectrum of issues including child labor, women’s health, disability empowerment, transitional justice, and water and sanitation while spreading AP’s core value of giving a voice to the voiceless.
