Strengthening response to hate crime through awareness raising and cooperation between actors
In December 2015 Social Action Centre started a new project “Strengthening response to hate crime through awareness raising and cooperation between actors”, which is conducted with financial support of Norwegian Helsinki Comittee (http://nhc.no/en/) within the Promotion of Human Rights and Rule of Law for LGBTI persons in Ukraine program*.
Within the project, Social Action Centre and invited experts will conduct series of educational events and meetings aimed to increase capacity of local authorities and local law enforcement agencies to recognize and react towards homophobic manifestations on local level, and to increase cooperation between local LGBTI** communities, mainstream human rights organizations, local authorities and local law enforcement agencies. The Project takes place in three regions of Ukraine. In order to receive more information about the project and to take part in project events process, please keep an eye on news on our web-site and facebook page.
