We are HERE - Communication campaigns to build trust in the non-governmental sector

The aim of the We are HERE project is to increase the visibility of the role and work of the LGBT non-governmental sector at a national level among allies, stakeholders and the general public through three awareness and engagement campaigns over a 12-month period.

In the case of the LGBT community in Romania, NGOs that address this population are, in the almost total lack of state intervention in solving their specific problems, the repository of all the expectations of the community.

MozaiQ Association aims to increase the civic engagement of LGBT citizens and allies by informing them on the results of the Campus Pride –
Advocacy Campaigns for Safe Universities project
, and the role and functioning of NGOs, strengthening the constituency by actively recruiting new members through information sessions and one-on-one interviews for the organization’s General Assembly. The project also proposes to increase the visibility of civil society organizations by activating LGBT allies through piloting a communication campaign to popularize the results of the Campus Pride project, by mapping allies and organizing an Allies Gala, organized with support from the partner association, Eu sunt! Tu?, which will bring an added contribution in terms of workshops and legitimacy to the project and civil society as a whole.

The project addresses the LGBT community, and its central message is that NGOs are the foundation of democracy and direct involvement in their work generates systemic change, especially for vulnerable, minority groups.

Objectives of the Project:

  • Increase direct participation of LGBT people and LGBT students in the LGBT non-governmental sector.
  • Improve the general public’s awareness of the outcomes of the Campus Pride project.
  • Increase the level of involvement of allies in the LGBT non-governmental sector.

We work together for a more inclusive Europe!
