14 harm reduction and drug policy activists were trained in Budapest by the HCLU. We wish our partner trainees successful use of their newly acquired video advocacy skills in their struggle for human rights and humane drug policies!
The HCLU Video Advocacy Training was held in Budapest between 21 and 25 of May 2012. The 14 participants arrived from Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Bulgaria and Poland. The video advocacy training material was written and presented by István Gábor Takács, the Director of HCLU's Video Advocacy Program. Some parts of the video advocacy theory presentations were built on the training material of Witness. The international drug policy and human rights related education was held by Péter Sárosi, head of the Drug Policy Program. Future video advocacy plans of participants were reviewed by Balázs Dénes, head of the HCLU. The logistics were organized by Andrea Polgár, translations during preparations were voluntarily provided by Dina Balogh, and during the whole course, the trainees were assisted by Ádám Surányi and Kata Sós of the HCLU.
