LHRC's Active Participation in CSO Week 2023
Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) was an active and significant participant in CSO Week 2023, held from October 23rd to October 27th, 2023, at the prestigious Arusha International Conference Centre (AICC).
This event marked an important convergence of non-governmental organizations and development stakeholders, contributing to the dynamic discourse surrounding civil society engagement. The team representing LHRC included distinguished members, such as Dr. Anna Henga, the Executive Director, and Advocate Fulgence Massawe, Director of Advocacy and Reforms. Additionally, a contingent of Program Officers from LHRC joined in, further emphasizing the organization's commitment to the event's objectives.
The theme for CSO Week 2023, "Tech x Society: Then, Now, and Beyond," underscored the pivotal role technology plays in shaping our society, both historically and in the contemporary context. This theme set the stage for insightful discussions on the impact of technology on civil society, human rights, and the broader development landscape.
One of the standout moments during this event occurred on October 26, 2023, when LHRC hosted a side event that garnered significant attention. During this event, LHRC unveiled a groundbreaking report on femicide, shedding light on the critical issue of violence against women. This report undoubtedly added depth and substance to the discussions around gender-based violence and further underscored LHRC's dedication to human rights advocacy.
