Advocacy

LHRC being an advocacy organisation, this program is a hub where advocacy issues tapped from other units are compiled, analyzed and processed, kept in database and worked upon accordingly.

The program responds to both preplanned issues and instantaneously erupting issues. The Unit also runs the Constitutional database and other LHRC databases; therefore one of the officers is a professional in IT and database.

The program is highly involved in the law making process in Tanzania and for that reason it reacts to analysis of bills from the parliament and law reforms from various ministries. The program works very closely with the Legal Aid Clinics to acquire issues for advocacy as well as advising for strategic litigations. Also to complement its advocacy initiatives, the program collaborates with Mass Education and Information for media advocacy.
