"By establishing a safe online space where human rights organisations can collectively offer training to human rights defenders, Advocacy Assembly has created what can only be described as the premier online university for the human rights community. It is a much needed initiative."
rose parris-richterExecutive Director of the Human Rights in Iran Unit, CUNY
"Efforts to document human rights violations have been invaluable to the human rights movement globally. Advocacy Assembly offers an opportunity to take pedagogy to another level. Its interactive and accessible platform is a safe tool for emerging practitioners and researchers to explore methodologies for human rights documentation, in addition to the ethical, privacy and security challenges posed by our work."

"School of Data is very experienced in face to face training but we know we can’t reach everybody like this. We are very excited to break the geographic barriers and reach new audiences through this amazing online, multi-lingual platform."
