ADVANCING EQUAL JUSTICE AND HUMAN RIGHTS IS OUR GOAL – HELP THE MEMBERS OF THE ITALIAN COALITION KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
Human rights work depends on the voluntary efforts and goodwill of activists and concerned citizens.
When the Italian Coalition was founded in 1997, the founding members decided that all the members of the association – including themselves – should be unpaid volunteers, which means that nobody has ever received and won’t ever receive money for their work on the national territory (and abroad).
Until not long ago, we were able to self-finance our trips to the USA. But sadly today, as a consequence of the financial and economic crisis in our country, the war, the pandemic, the lack of work and the lack of regional, state, and private funding, we are forced to seek help, because unfortunately we are no longer able to finance this kind of projects by our own efforts and means only.
Hence the need for collecting funds in order to continue to effectively achieve the positive results that we have been achieving for so many years, which have undoubtedly helped raise awareness and educate the public on crime prevention and on what can and should be done to stay human even in a violent society.
The goal that we would like to achieve is a trip to Texas in the last two weeks of August 2023 to visit some prisoners detained in the Allan B. Polunsky Unit in Livingston.
