GA 3: Social, Humanitarian and Cultural

-Developing a social entirety and collobration among people with different identities

People around the world face violence and inequality—and sometimes torture, even execution—because of who they love, how they look, or who they are. Sexual orientation and gender identity are integral aspects of ourselves and should never lead to discrimination or abuse.  In order to document and expose cases of abuse based on sexual orientation and gender identity worldwide, including torture, killing and executions, arrests under unjust laws, unequal treatment, censorship, medical abuses, discrimination in health, occupation, and housing, domestic violence, abuses against children, and denial of family rights and recognition, the SOCHUM committee advocates for laws and policies that will protect everyone’s dignity and also works to ensure that everyone can live openly and authentically without discrimination, harassment, or violence.
