The Activities of 'BARAM'
Baram discovers agendas that reveal the reality of human rights and conducts fact-finding activities. We expose discrimination about irregular workers, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities etc. We do social minority labor rights activities, National Human Rights Commission petition etc.
Bram trains human rights education to improve human rights sensitivity and awareness of rights among members of society.
Baram is in a place of struggle. The progress of human rights cannot be separated from the scene of eating, working, and fighting. When we breathe with people who are struggling, our progress becomes more transparent, our language becomes clearer, and we gain strength. Human rights are not colorful words, but people's practice and solidarity are believed to be made in places where they stand, so we conduct field-based human rights movements.
Baram is in solidarity with the struggle for dismissed workers, is together the struggle for social disasters, fights for abortion rights, and acts as a human rights violation monitor.
