Sexual and Gender Minority

The program’s mandate is to advocate for and work towards equality inclusion on discrimination, non-violence, and non-heterosexism for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, and asexual persons (LGBTIQ+ persons). This is done through hate-crime prevention and diligence in hate-crime prosecution; legal aid for LGBTIQ+ victims of discrimination and violence; LGBTIQ+ empowerment through human rights education and country-based, regional and international advocacy actions.
