About Our Advocacy

Helem is a space where LGBTQIA+ people can work on building power to oppose power. The topics we concentrate on are derived from close connections with members of our own community and from clear and compelling data which is constantly harvested from our personal interactions as well as our service provision. Helem recognizes that working intersectionality with and across diverse groups and issues requires great responsibility, flexibility, and strategic depth. We therefore work not only on issues related to identity and civil/political rights, but also prioritize social and economic rights by leveraging law, development, and community mobilization as tools for equality and liberation. We do not only ask "How do we improve institutions?" but more so, "How do we improve lives?". Our success is measured by how much we integrate queer issues and priorities into the greater civil, social, and economic movements in our own contexts.
