Submitted by on March 2, 2018 – 12:35 pmNo Comment

CSBR is excited to welcome our newest member, Forum for Dignity Initiatives (FDI), from Pakistan!

FDI_logoFDI’s mission is to improve the human rights situation of invisible and marginalized sexual and gender minority groups, specifically transgender people, sex workers, and girls and young women. FDI serves as a facilitator to integrate these identified marginalized groups into the mainstream society with economic empowerment and ensure their socio-cultural inclusion at all levels with equality, equity and dignity.

As part of the 2017 One Day One Struggle campaign, FDI released a video documenting their views and approaches to solidarity, support and advocacy work with trans women in Pakistan:

At the national level, FDI has been active on issues of law reform, legal gender recognition, human rights education, the use of arts & culture as tools for awareness raising, policy dialogues, and much more. FDI is also involved in the global Right Here, Right Now partnership, working on youth and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
