Ahead of the EU Employment and Social Affairs Council on 11 December, we have issued a joint NGO statement on the proposed directive on equal treatment between persons irrespective of religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation to EU Employment and Social Affairs Ministers.
We call on governments to show clear commitment on the proposed Horizontal Directive on equal treatment, as the respect and protection of fundamental rights are not up for negotiation.
It is signed by ten organisations representing millions of EU citizens at risk of discrimination, including women, persons with disabilities, younger and older people, LGBTI persons, members of ethnic, religion and belief communities as well as persons with a migration background.
