Centre is supporting a young athlete named Miia in court, who confidentially reported to the head of her school the sexual harassment she experienced and her coach filed a defamation complaint against her along with a claim for compensation for damage. As part of the donation rally, we will be presenting the different aspects of legal proceedings and collecting donations to support Miia in court. Sexual harassment is a serious violation of human rights, and victims of such behaviour must be able to talk about what has happened with confidence, without fear that it will lead to dropping out of school, persecution, re-victimisation, false accusations or other unpleasant consequences.
The Centre’s strategic cases are taken to court with the help of our donors. The aim of strategic litigation is to influence the quality of laws and of their implementation through individual and carefully selected cases, thereby helping a number of people through a single proceeding. By protecting Miia’s rights, we can stand for the safety of all young people.
Today, on Giving Tuesday, Your donation has an extra impact! On November 29, the most impactful donations can be made through the donation environment, where Swedbank will leverage the donations with up to €40,000.
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.
