International Rescue Committee (IRC): This partnership brings together the experience and legal aid of Advocates with the high demand for assistance of IRC.
Legal and practical advice shall be delivered even more rapidly via social media real time response, including the IRC's online aid roadmap, and Advocates field team presence.
University of Baltimore Law School (UBL): Advocates is pleased to establish this program and new Academic Project Coordinator, Ms. Catherine Moore, UBL Coordinator for International Law Programs and Lecturer.
Through this collaboration, students will link their academic studies of international law, human rights, and humanitarian law to the current refugee crisis by assisting in the current case work of Advocates. This year long project will culminate in a field mission in March 2017. More information on the current CICL Fellows can be found HERE.
Sea of Solidarity (SOS): This partnership grew from the generosity of SOS, a 501c3, that created a legal fund to support Advocates field missions. All donations are tax deductible and are used solely for field team operations.
Through this legal fund and partnership, Advocates Abroad has successfully completed 120 field missions in Greece and Turkey, since March 2016. These missions have included critical short and long term human rights monitoring projects and specific legal aid distribution.
