Donate to our #Together4Equality Campaign and help us to support equality defenders
Today, the Equal Rights Trust launches #Together4Equality – a fundraising campaign which aims to enhance and accelerate its work for equality defenders around the world.
An equality defender is anyone – civil society representative, lawyer, journalist, government representative, philanthropist – committed to promoting a world in which all can participate on an equal basis. We work in partnership with equality defenders to secure the adoption and implementation of equality laws.
Between now and 10 December (Human Rights Day), the #Together4Equality campaign will profile fifteen equality defenders from around the world, providing an insight into their work and the support we are providing. Our target is to raise £15,000 - £1,000 for our work with each of these equality defenders. Your generous donation will enhance and accelerate our work with them.
Our first equality defender is Sardorbek Abdukhalilov, a lawyer working with Spravedlivost, a human rights organization based in Jalal-Abad in southern Kyrgyzstan.
We have been working with Sardorbek for more than five years: among other things, we have supported him to bring litigation on behalf of members of Kyrgyzstan’s ethnic minority population and worked with him to undertake an in-depth analysis of the national legal framework on equality and non-discrimination. We are currently supporting Sardorbek and other members of the Kyrgyzstani Equality Coalition to develop and advocate for the adoption of a comprehensive equality law in the country.
Equality Defenders like Sardorbek are at the heart of the Equal Rights Trust's work. With your help, we can continue to support them to fight for an equal world. Please stand #Together4Equality. Please donate and share information about our campaign.
