“WE VOTE TOO” – is a report on attitudes of the presidential candidates regarding the status and improvement of rights of LGBTI people in Serbia
On March 17, association “Da Se Zna!”, which maps instances of violence and discrimination towards LGBTTIQA people, launched the campaign under the title “We Vote Too”. Purpose of the campaign is to learn about attitudes of the presidential candidates regarding the status of the LGBTI community in Serbia and its improvement. This way we want to imply that while making decision on who to vote for LGBTI people will take into consideration candidates attitudes towards human rights of LGBTI persons. We want to encourage LGBTI people, as well as other citizens who care for situation with human rights, to exercise their voting rights and to vote for candidates who stand for equality and respect for human rights.
Campaign will in most part be realized through the social networks, and will conclude with the report on attitudes of presidential candidates regarding the LGBTI community.
Initially, candidates received a questionnaire via email. Later, to receive as many responses as possible, association “Da Se Zna!” also contacted candidates’ campaign headquarters to receive information on whether candidates intend to respond to the questionnaires.
