Creative Campaigning in Restrictive Spaces: A workshop to explore effective advocacy in restrictive spaces using Lifeline’s new toolkit
We invite you – as grassroots activists from civil society organizations, movements, and networks – to join us for an interactive workshop to explore real-world examples illustrating effective tactics for advocacy in restrictive spaces. The workshop will build upon the new advocacy toolkit (https://www.csolifeline.org/advocacy-toolkit) recently developed by the Lifeline Fund for Embattled CSOs to support CSOs operating in the toughest environments. In the era of COVID-19 restrictions, this resource is even more timely, as growing numbers of CSOs find themselves operating in increasingly restrictive space and need to reconsider where opportunities exist and campaign creatively.

9:00-10:30am EDT

Moderator: Masana Ndinga-Kanga, Crisis Response Fund Lead, CIVICUS
