Advocacy

People around the Northern Uganda face violence and inequality and sometimes torture, even execution because of who they love, how they look, or who they are. Sexual orientation and gender identity are integral aspects of our selves and should never lead to discrimination or abuse. HRI works for Female Sex workers and LGBT peoples’ rights, and with activists representing a multiplicity of identities and issues. We sensitize the communities to avoid abuses based on sexual orientation and gender identity , including torture, killing and executions, arrests under unjust laws, unequal treatment, censorship, medical abuses, discrimination in health and jobs and housing, domestic violence, abuses against children, and denial of family rights and recognition. We advocate for laws and policies that will protect everyone’s dignity. We work for a world where all people can enjoy their rights fully.
