Creating and Sustaining Awareness of LGBTQI Rights

Join the New Tactics community for an online conversation on Creating and Sustaining Awareness of LGBTQI Rights from June 26-30, 2017. LGBTQI rights were only officially recognized as human rights by the United Nations in 2011. Since then the OHCHR’s Free & Equal campaign has sought to raise awareness and advocate for an end to discrimination against LGBTQI individuals. However, it is difficult to break the stigma which exists against non-heterosexual or cisgender individuals in many cases. This means that even when legal protections are instituted, enforcement is oftentimes lacking.
