By Charlotte Robinson, December 05, 2018
OutRight Action International’s Advocacy Week brings together almost 50 LGBTQ activists from 36 countries & every region of the world to participate in the organization’s 7th annual Advocacy Week at the United Nations (UN) that runs now through December 7th when human rights defenders meet with government representatives & UN officials as they discuss the most pertinent issues in the field of international LGBTQ human rights. Advocates meet face to face with dignitaries from participating country delegations throughout the week. They will also meet with representatives from UN bodies like UN Women, the LGBTI Core Group & the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. Jessica Stern, Executive Director of Outright Action International stated, “Advocacy week is where LGBTIQ voices & lived realities are amplified & delivered directly to the leaders & representatives who make international policy decisions. Activists from around the world have the chance to make the most of these meetings & come together with fellow advocates to strategize & learn from each other.” Advocacy Week culminates on December 8th with OutSummit, a one-day global conference bringing together U.S.-based & international activists to meet & discuss critical issues affecting the global LGBTIQ movement. This year’s conference highlights some of the world’s foremost experts & activists discussing the most cutting edge issues impacting the global human rights movement. OutSummit is hosted at The City University of New York Law School & is organized in partnership with the Sorensen Center for International Peace & Justice.
