University Students Advocacy Network Founded

"University Students Advocacy Network" is established within the Rights Project, which aims to empower university students to prevent discrimination and human rights violations against young people from the groups of "women, religion/belief and LGBTI+".

Students from Ankara, Diyarbakir, Hatay, Istanbul, Izmir, Mardin, Mersin and Samsun will come together as part of the study, which aims to build connections between university students in the 18-25 age group based on equality and zero discrimination through online and face-to-face activities.

In the University Students Advocacy Network, which will work to promote human rights, young members of the network will help gather information on human rights violations and discrimination cases in their provinces.

A network for civil journalism will also be established

A "Civil Journalism Network" will also be established to report on human rights, with young university students interested in civil journalism among the network's members.

Civil Journalism Network members will produce digital news and commentary on the human rights of vulnerable groups, monitor news for disinformation and hate speech as part of their monitoring and advocacy activities, and create podcasts and video streams for the news platform on the Rights Project website.
