About Us

Founded in 2011 by a group of academics, lawyers, and activists, SPoD has been working to find lasting and comprehensive solutions to the violence, oppression, and discrimination experienced by members of the LGBTI+ community. SPoD provides legal, social, and psychological consulting as well as runs training workshops for mental health and social workers, lawyers, institutions, and municipalities. We also organize academic research, seminars, panels, advocacy meetings, Policy and Activism Schools, election campaigns, and support groups for refugees, trans people, and people with disabilities. Our organization is composed of both professional employees and volunteers.
