About the program
Strategic litigation program means conducting strategic trials in the matters of discrimination and other violations on the grounds of sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
This is the program that carries out all “Coming Out” trials, aiming to change situation with LGBT-communities in Russia.
What is all that about?
For example, protecting one person from discrimination in services on the grounds of SOGI would allow to protect other people – as positive law-enforcement practices are formed in trial by every case.
It’s about pursuing one of our goals – admitting that crimes motivated by hate because of SOGI were classified as hate crimes against LGBT and were investigated as such.
