Equal Rights for All Coalition (ERAC) brings together seven (7) NGOs that work in the domain of rule of law and fundamental rights with a particular focus on the establishment of a sustainable network of CSOs that are active in the protection and promotion of the fundamental rights of vulnerable and/or marginalised groups (VMGs). The project special focus are the following groups: all minority communities in Kosovo, women, youth and LGBT community.Although working on similar topics and issues, these NGOs are often divided on the basis of the particular target groups they are working with or the region they are activein. By establishing structural cooperation between selected NGOs and providing formal opportunities for continuous learning, the action generates the sharing of knowledge and experience between NGOs (including on institutional matters), strengthen their capacities for advocacy with relevant central and municipal institutions, and increases their visibility.
