» Our Actions » Discrimination
La France est marquée par une persistance de discriminations qui marginalisent des millions de citoyens qui sont stigmatisés pour ce qu’ils sont et non pour ce qu’ils font. Bien que condamnées par la loi, les discriminations en fonction de l’origine, du genre, de l’orientation sexuelle, des convictions religieuses, ou d’un handicap restent monnaie courante. Elles ont un impact direct sur l’accès à l’emploi, au logement et d’une manière plus générale au sentiment d’appartenance à la nation. De nombreux acteurs de la société civile sont engagés sur ces questions. Le cadre législatif a été renforcé. Mais il reste beaucoup à faire tant au niveau des lois que des pratiques administratives. VoxPublic entend soutenir les acteurs de la société civile qui se battent contre les discriminations.
