The Equal Rights Trust exists to advance equality worldwide. We work with civil society, lawyers, journalists, experts and activists in more than 40 countries around the world to combat discrimination and promote equality. We pursue our objectives through advocacy, litigation, development of resources, and movement building.
Tomorrow on Human Rights Day, we are called on to stand up for somebody else’s rights.
At the Equal Rights Trust, we have been standing up for the rights of others for almost a decade. Now we need you to stand up and support our #Campaign4Equality so we can keep up this work.
It’s #GivingTuesday, the antidote to Black Friday and we are asking you to help us seek justice for victims of discrimination by donating to our #Campaign4Equality.
Ensuring people can access legal advice and the courts to challenge discrimination is just one of the ways the Equal Rights Trust works to advance equality worldwide.
