Educating individuals and communities about human rights issues is critical to generate interest and involvement in human rights movements. From September to November, New Tactics will be dedicatinga series of conversations to this important theme: Building Awareness. We believe that by having three discussions around this theme will help you, the community, dig deeper into your tactic-exploration, reflection and exchange. We want you to take away practical information, new allies and concrete ideas to move your human rights work forward. Here's our plan:

In the meantime, explore the community-created resources we already have on building awareness and get ready to share your own experiences, questions, challenges and ideas over the next three months. If you are interested in helping to lead any of these conversations, please contact us!

Tactics and Resources for Combating Militarisation

In June, we hosted a fantastic conversation with War Resisters International (WRI) on Tactics for Combating Militarisation. A summary of that discussion is now available on the conversation page in both English and Spanish (thanks to our summer intern, Deanna). Thank you to all the conversation leaders who contributed to this resource and a special thank you to Javier G├írate and Hannah Brockof WRI who facilitated the discussion!
