Equal rights for all

In a democracy, everyone has the right to equal treatment. Yet many countries accept discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGBTI) people, women, ethnic and religious minorities and people with disabilities, and even have laws that explicitly allow it.

Fighting Discrimination

The Fighting Discrimination Program of Human Rights First focuses on the violence known as hate crimes or bias crimes. Because equality is a cornerstone of human rightsprotection, discrimination in all its forms is a violation of human rights. Discrimination can take the form of violence generated by prejudice and hatred founded upon a person’s raceethnicityreligious beliefsexual orientationgenderdisability, age or other such factors.

Through the Fighting Discrimination Program, Human Rights First seeks to combat discrimination by reversing the tide of antisemiticanti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim violence and reducing other bias crime in North AmericaEurope, and the Russian Federation.

In this effort, the Program looks at both the reality of violence driven by discrimination in each country. We look forward to Equality and Stopping hate crimes. Join us in the move today!
