The Robust Initiative for Promoting Human Rights (TRIUMPH UGANDA), will today Monday 11th May 2020 launch a resource book for LGBTI paralegals in Uganda. The launch which will be a Facebook Live event will see TRIUMPH UGANDA’s Executive Director Shibolo Awali Sean speak about why this resource book is much needed given Uganda’s current political and lockdown climate.
The book to be launched is a response to the effects of COVID-19 and the resultant access (or lack thereof) to justice faced by LGBTI individuals throughout the country. It is therefore geared towards empowering LGBT paralegals across the nation to respond to the human rights violations that may arise during this lockdown.
The soft copy book is a timely resource as we have in the recent past seen LGBTI individuals arrested under the guise of preventing the spread of COVID-19 as per the current presidential directives. These individuals were further denied bail as well as access to their legal representation. In anticipation of more cases such as these, this resource book will equip LGBT paralegals with the necessary information to be of assistance to their communities.
A copy pof the resource book will be made available on both this website and the TRIUMPH UGANDA website shortly after its launch.
The launch which will start at 2:000PM EAT will be streamed on the TRIUMPH UGANDA Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/triumphuganda?refid=12
