The Advocacy Project is proud to have worked alongside 114 community-based advocacy groups since 1998. We believe strongly that social change can begin in communities and that civil society can be a powerful force for justice – particularly when it is led by people who have been directly affected by the wrongs they are seeking to right. Many of our partner organizations were founded by individuals who emerged from a marginalized community and have experienced discrimination or worse. This gives them credibility and motivation.
