Equality and Human Rights Action Centre (ACTEDO) is a human rights non-governmental and non-profit organisation, with no political or religious affiliation. ACTEDO was established in 2013 and is based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
ACTEDO’s mission is to promote fundamental human rights and gender equality and to act against human rights violations. We consider that abuses against vulnerable groups and gender inequality are rooted in the lack of human rights education on a national level, in stereotypical beliefs and practices regarding men and women, as well as in the failure of institutions to implement laws and apply adequate sanctions in cases of abuse and discrimination. In order to reach our objectives, we pursue three strategic directions (programmes):
1. Access to Justice.
2. Gender Equality.
3. Human Rights Education.
