My name is Aubree Sadural and I am an advocate for human rights.

I am working as HLAF Jail Decongestion Program Officer, and under this program, we coordinate with the Philippine Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in forwarding the rights of the persons behind bars.

The opportunity to join and participate in NAMATI can be an avenue for me to evaluate the aspects of the work I am doing and enable me to be more effective in communicating why we need to help those people behind bars.
