What are we doing for 2 days?
What issues will you advocating for?
Day 1: We will conduct a full-day training for the participants in partnership with Egypt experts and advocates.
Day 2: Advocacy day including a visit to the State Department for briefings, a congressional reception, and constituents will meet with their elected officials.
The issues we plan on pressing are mainly focused on human rights and democratic governance lurching into a black hole.
