Advocacy Good Practices Database
This database of 27 advocacy good practices is drawn from the experiences of disabled people’s organizations (DPOs) supported by USAID’s Expanding Participation of People with Disability (EPD) program. Seven DPOs implemented advocacy campaigns in 7 of Bangladesh’s 64 districts from 2018 to 2020 to promote implementation of the Persons with Disabilities Rights and Protection Act, 2013 (DRPA). Implemented by BlueLaw International, LLP in partnership with the Bangladesh Legal Aid Services Trust (BLAST), National Grassroots Disability Organization (NGDO), and National Council of Disabled Women (NCDW), USAID’s Expanding Participation of People with Disability (EPD) program has contributed to numerous successes including the filing of Bangladesh’s first 22 complaints before DRPA district committees using a unique procedure under Section 36. This database aims to identify specific good practices that EPD-supported DPOs have used during their campaigns so that DPOs in other districts might learn from and replicate their successes.
