Thursday, November 4th, 2021, ACTEDO, together with the Center for Legal Resources (CLR), with the support of [H]LGBTQ United Brasov, organized a workshop dedicated to support service providers for people in vulnerable situations, entitled: Inclusion and Nondiscrimination of LGBTQ People.
The workshop was built around the main issues that the LGBTQ minority (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender people, queer people) faces in Romania and presented useful resources and support services available nationwide. The special guests, Georgiana Țucan ([H] LGBTQ + Brașov) and Alexandra Columban (ACETDO) spoke about:
📌 Terminology and identities
📌 Brief history of the rights of LGBTQ people in Romania
📌 The rights of LGBTQ people today
📌 The main problems faced by LGBTQ people in Romania
📌 What does LGBTQ activism look like in Romania?
📌 Useful resources for LGBTQ practitioners and people
One of the objectives of the meeting was to exchange information and good practices between support service providers - state-run social services, NGOs, and informal support groups - at the national level, in order to facilitate inter-institutional communication and improve the referral of beneficiaries to complementary services. At the same time, the speakers presented the results of the largest pro bono clearinghouse in Romania - The Pro Bono Network for Human Rights - in its 6 years of existence. Through The Pro Bono Network, people in vulnerable situations can benefit from free legal assistance and representation in court (pro bono).
The workshop is part of the project INTEGRIS: Integrated Support for Human Rights, developed by the Equality and Human Rights Action Centre (ACTEDO), in partnership with the Center for Legal Resources (CLR), with the financial support of Active Citizens Fund Romania, program funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants 2014-2021.
