The Advocacy Project (AP) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to strengthen community-based human rights advocacy groups. AP was established in June 1998 to report to human rights advocates from the Rome conference that established the International Criminal Court. AP continued on a project-by-project basis until it acquired nonprofit status in July 2001. As of 2008, AP's Peace Fellows work with 21 different organizations throughout the world.
AP seeks a world in which disempowered people are able to find their voice and exercise their right to develop – on their own terms and with appropriate support from their government and the international community. Advocacy Project
Their blogs help to bring alive the work of their hosts and allows them to communicate with friends, universities, and community groups back home that are following their work. Blogging has provided many AP fellows with an outlet for their hopes and frustrations. Several fellows have also used blogs to raise funds for their partners and their own travel costs. Advocacy Project
AP offers its partner organizations the opportunity to disseminate their information through the AP website and AdvocacyNet, an online news service that takes material from partners and turns them into news bulletins. These news bulletins, which profile innovative models of community-based advocacy and report on community campaigns, are sent out to more than 6,000 subscribers. Partners that lack their own websites post information on the AP website—on customized pages or in blogs.ICT training methods specifically designed to meet the needs of the partner organization, so that these partners can continue to disseminate information when the Peace Fellow leaves.
