The New York Young Advocates are a group of over 700 young professionals
in the New York metropolitan area who work with Human Rights Watch staff
to provide a vital public outreach function.  The group?s purpose is to
increase awareness of human rights issues and to expand the protection
of human rights both locally and globally, through education and
advocacy.  The Young Advocates organize monthly public education
briefings featuring HRW staff and other experts on various human rights
topics.  These briefings form the basis of a variety of advocacy
campaigns aimed at improving human rights protections around the world
through targeted petitions, letter writing campaigns and direct
assistance with human rights monitoring in the United States. The group
is led by a an elected Executive Board and a steering committee, made up
of three sub-committees (Advocacy, Programming & Fundraising), which
meet monthly to coordinate the group’s activities.
