Protecting human rights is

Despite the postponement of the 66th ordinary session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACmHPR) due to the current health crisis, the African Men on Sexual Health and Rights (AMSHeR) and Synergía celebrate the 6th anniversary of the adoption of Resolution 275/2014 on May 12th, 2014.

Resolution 275 on Protection against Violence and other Human Rights Violations against Persons on the basis of their real or imputed Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity (ACHPR/Res.275(LV)2014) is a groundbreaking document for the protection of all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in Africa.

Our Partnerships

Synergía’s work is grounded in partnerships with local, regional, international organizations, and human rights movements.

Through these partnerships, we seek to ground our work in collaborations that acknowledge those most affected by human rights violations and abusers are those that define those needs that are most pressing and decide on hose strategies that will be most effective in addressing them.

Support Our Work

Your support will further our work by offering flexible resources that will be used to advance our provision of capacity strengthening, funding, and strategic guidance to our partners. The flexibility of this support is vital when there is an opportunity to take advantage of a quickly emerging opportunity or when responding to an emerging crisis. This ultimately creates more adaptive and resilient movements that are necessary to ensure human rights for all.
