Thanks to our permanent donors and the one-time financial support from many good people, the Estonian Human Rights Center can independently and competently stand up for human rights everywhere in Estonia: in courtrooms, in the press, in schools, on the streets, in the corridors of power.
With the help of donors, we have fought for the love of Darja and Jana, assisted Sarah and Kristiina in their residence permit and received confirmation from the court that families raising children must be treated equally, as the family of Marina and Jelena. We have found solutions through the court to some of the problems that have arisen due to the lack of implementing provisions of the Registered Partnership Act. Thanks to the support, we have ensured the provision of high-quality legal aid to asylum seekers at the center and over the years have made the Estonian asylum procedure of higher quality.
Donations help the Center fight hatred, injustice and discrimination. Last summer, we defended the Rakvere film festival Festheart against injustice. We also stand up for equal opportunities for people with disabilities: we have been helping young man with reduced mobility in litigation with the city of Tallinn for several years. We will continue to support 63-year-old Merike in a lawsuit that focuses on possible age discrimination in the labor market.
Thanks to the donations, the Center publishes a human rights report every second year, in which the experts in their field write about the changes that have taken place in various fields of human rights in Estonia. It is a reliable tool for professionals, an important teaching material in schools and a useful source of human rights information for all interested parties.
The main areas of activity of the EHRC are equal treatment, the fight against hate and the rights of refugees. The aim of the Center is to help as many people as we can. Also, with strategic litigation, we hope that with each court case, in addition to helping one person, we will achieve a wider social impact and protection of rights in our society.
Donations to the Center always go to the right and important place: the protection of human rights today and in the future. Thank you for supporting human rights in Estonia!
Since you are here...
It is important to protect everyone’s human rights, because it helps to keep stability and peace in the society. There are many challenges for protection of human rights in Estonia: intolerance has really come out of the closet. Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.
Estonian Human Rights Centre is the competent, accountable and impactful independent human rights organisation in Estonia. Your recurring or one-time donation helps to stand up for human rights everywhere: in courts, in the media, in schools, in the workplace, on the streets and in governmental venues.
