The Harvard Project on Disability (HPOD) is pleased to announce the convening of a workshop to mark the release of We Have Human Rights, an action and advocacy handbook specifically designed by and for self-advocates with intellectual disabilities and for use by all who are interested in advancing the human rights of persons with disabilities.
HPOD will release the Handbook during the second half of June in New York at a human rights education workshop modeled on participatory exercises in the Handbook. HPOD is calling for applications from self advocates from developing countries and applications are especially welcome from self-advocates who represent disabled peoples organizations working on the rights of persons with intellectual disabilities.
Please send a letter expressing your interest to:
Professor Michael Stein:
Harvard Law School
1563 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02138 USA
Please include in the letter an explanation of the work you are doing in your country and how you propose to use the Handbook in your advocacy. Please respond by May 15.
Two successful applicants will receive a travel stipend in the amount of $2500 to cover travel to New York and accommodation.
