#HumanRightsChat began as a discussion between human rights activists on Twitter. While we no longer hold Twitter chats, we encourage activists to share their experiences advancing human rights strategy using this hashtag. More recently, New Tactics has launched the Human Rights Chat podcast, where we interview activists and human rights defenders on their best resources for more strategic and effective advocacy. The Human Rights Chat podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Anchor and SoundCloud.
A New Tactics #HumanRightsChat Featured Participant is someone who has committed to participate in New Tactics' #HumanRightsChat via Twitter to share their experience or expertise on a particular conversation topic.
Participating as a #HumanRightsChat Featured Participant is a great opportunity for you to reflect on your own work, share resources and experiences, and learn from peers and allies.
Our #HumanRightsChat Moderators are the driving force behind the success of our online conversations.
New Tactics #HumanRightsChat Moderators facilitate a New Tactics Twitter chat.
Moderators are responsible for:
The Strategic Effectiveness trainings are focused on helping human rights defenders learn how to develop strategies to help them achieve their goals and then choosing and implementing tactics to support the strategy. We provide hands-on activities and experience working with others to create a strategy and learn how to identify effective tactics.
The Tactical Mapping process was developed by New Tactics in Human Rights to help organizations evaluate their own context and the broader situation from a different perspective.
Tactical Mapping is used to think about key relationships (people, groups, institutions), tactics and potential allies. The process sets the stage for creating strategy and identifying and implementing tactics.
The New Tactics Community is a place for human rights advocates around the world to gather, share thoughts and reflections, hold discussions, and collaborate with others. Anyone can view comments on our online Conversations, but you will need to register and log in to add your own comments.
