Anti-discrimination Center

On Monday we went to this anti-discrimination organization that provide counselling in several fields for different types of discrimination.

It was a really interesting experience getting to know there is a place where people can count on some help regarding legal, social and employment issues. From what I know there is no place like this in Portugal, especially one that can cover LGBT issues.

They don't cover only this issues, actually their scope of action  is quite wide:

- Race
- Gender
- Sexual Orientation
- Disability
- Age
- Religion

They run several campaigns focused on bringing awareness to these topics, aiming for a more respectful social environment. We also had an interesting debate at the end, sharing experiences from our countries.
