Promoting and Protecting Human Rights in the United States

New Tactics in Human Rights, a program of the Center for Victims of Torture, has primarily focused its work on supporting human rights activists outside the U.S. over the past sixteen years. However, the changing political climate in the U.S. is inspiring new advocacy efforts to protect and promote rights. To be as effective as possible in 2017 and beyond, we believe it is critical that activists focus on building their strategic and tactical capacity.

And we at New Tactics are ready to help.

Today, I’m pleased to announce that New Tactics is expanding its training offerings in the U.S. These offerings are all centered on the New Tactics Strategic Effectiveness Method. Our method helps organizations that want to protect and promote rights to do their work more effectively by providing a framework and tools through which to be more strategic, focused and flexible.

Our method has already been used by groups in the U.S. to successfully protect and promote a wide range of rights. For instance, it was one tool used by U.S. human rights and civil liberties organizations to form powerful coalitions to fight the U.S. use of torture and cruelty in post-9/11 counterterrorism operations.

The method has been refined over sixteen years of international advocacy experience, and is now available through a variety of newly designed workshops. These workshops can be tailored to an individual organization or a coalition, and are conducted in-person by highly experienced New Tactics trainers.

At New Tactics, we inspire and equip activists to change the world. We hope you will join us by participating in and sharing these exciting new training offerings.
