LAWRS is also aware that many meaningful changes for vulnerable groups take place as a result of policy and advocacy work by voluntary organisations. We also (recognise instead of ‘believe’) that (‘Latin American’ instead of some ) women are affected by intersectional layers of discrimination as women, ethnic minorities and migrants refugees or asylum seekers. This is the situation facing the majority of our clients. We actively advocate for women’s rights, migrant’s rights and the rights of ethnic minorities at local, national and EU levels, working along sister organisations in the women and migrant sectors, as well as networks and campaigns. We take a human rights based approach and follow the principles of a feminist organisation throughout our policy, advocacy and campaign work.
