2020 was undoubtedly one of the most challenging years we have had as an organization. The COVID-19 pandemic and its implications required major institutional and personal efforts to continue in our mission of promoting and defending civil rights and strengthening democracy.
This collective effort of our staff (including those joining this year) and of our numerous collaborators implied bringing into play many of our skills to the maximum, such as patience, understanding, creativity, insight, and perseverance.
In this way, we were able to sustain our internal work dynamics, which in turn allowed us to identify and adjust our strategy to the new requirements posed by the sudden change of context.
The present timeline will allow readers to learn about the various reports and papers we have published; the different advocacy actions carried out and the new tools we developed; the various domestic, regional, and international instances in which we interacted, and the bonds we created.
Amidst – and in spite of – all this activity, we also made time to celebrate ADC’s 25th anniversary. What better acknowledgment to an organization’s record and maturity than its own capability to stand up to a challenge such as the one posed during 2020?
