The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights

The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights is the only clearinghouse in Romania dedicated to people from vulnerable groups whose fundamental rights are violated. Created in December 2014 by ACTEDO in order to facilitate the access to justice of vulnerable people or people exposed to discrimination or exclusion, The Pro Bono Network collaborates with attorneys from around the country who get involved in solving problems such as domestic violence, harassment, forced evictions, discrimination, access to education and health for people with disabilities, etc.

Through The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights, we provide the legal instruments necessary for people in vulnerable situations to defend their rights. The project is dedicated to individuals belonging to vulnerable groups, namely:

  • Roma people
  • people with disabilities
  • people with HIV/ AIDS
  • victims of domestic and gender-based violence
  • LGBT+ people
  • young people over 18 leaving the child protection system
  • women
  • families with more than two children and single-parent families at risk
  • children and elderly people at risk
  • people who have executed criminal penalties or educational measures
  • people with drug and alcohol addictions
  • homeless people
  • people affected by chronic or occupational illnesses
  • refugees and asylum seekers
