1 ZNP against homophobia Dorota Obidniak European Equality Committee Brussels, May 2011

2 Situation of LGBTQ people in Poland

3 Sexual rights: an IPPF declaration (International Planned Parenthood Federation) Poland can be currently distinguished by: One of the most rigorous anti-abortion laws Limited access to sex education (approximately 30% of students attend classes) An unusual degree of ideology involved in sex education (Education for the family life is subjected to strict control of the Church and implemented in accordance with its doctrine on the role of family, man and woman, etc.) The highest percentage of underage mothers (approximately 20,000 annually) Lack of access to free contraceptives Lack of access to sexual counseling and free medical care within the scope of sexual health

4 Sexual rights are human rights related to sexuality … but in the past It seems quite unbelievable that the basic principle expressed in the IPPF declaration was respected in Poland in the past and that Poland was very progressive country: The penalty for homosexuality was abolished in 1932 (England 1967, Scotland 1980, Northern Ireland 1982) Abortion was legal in the years – in some sense, the current law takes us back to the legal status of 1932

5 First steps, first activities These activities led us to initiate first joint projects: seminars for the ZNP regional leaders training sessions led by the leaders and educators from the LGBTQ communities organization of a working group on equality in the ZNP Executive Board (now is this group standing Committee) demonstrations with the participation of the organizations representing LGBTQ communities involvement in the preparation of the accompanying program EuroPride 2010 assistance in preparing reports, conducting research press releases and promotin of books press conferences

6 Current activities of the ZNP and its Partners Creation of professional lobbying platforms: Alliance for compulsory sex education Coalition for Equal Opportunities Coalition for anti-discrimination education Beginning of work on a common education portal Creation of a network of organizations for exchanging information and good practices

7 Current activities of the ZNP and its Partners Legislative action (slow changes in legislation, e.g. introduction of compulsory sex education from 2012), opinions on legal acts, etc. Preparation of publications, exhibitions, artistic activities, etc. related to discrimination at school Creation of networks of schools free from discrimination Works on the teachers professional code of ethics, which contains provisions on preventing discrimination

8 Importance of civil society (…)ZNP wrote a protest against the statements of the Government Plenipotentiary for Equal Treatment Elzbieta Radziszewska. In her controversial interview on the television programme "Dzień dobry TVN" she suggested that catholic schools should have the right not to employ teachers who are homosexuals. Homosexuality goes against the catholic point of view (dogma). The minister said that it would be enough even not to offer homosexuals teaching positions if their sexual preferences clash with the general beliefs and opinions of a certain group of people or the community. School is supposed to teach tolerance and you breach the basic human rights Ms Radziszewska – the members of the Polish Teachers Union have written in their open letter. Those comments were scandalous and they breach the basic human rights – says the President of ZNP Sławomir Broniarz in the protest. The unionists compare Radziszewskas statements to the actions taken by the former Minister of Education Roman Giertych (LPR) in the governmental coalition between PiS, LPR and Samoobrona.(…)

9 Benefits Gaining new friends Gaining a deeper and wider perspective as far as the problems of discrimination are concerned, especially the discrimination of LGBTQ people Using the expert base formed by the NGOs Gaining support in the promotion and implementation of the demands on modernizing sex education and school culture Renovating our role as teachers union in nowadays society

10 The ZNP and foreign partners vs. preventing discrimination Beginning of training sessions on the prevention of discrimination for the regional representatives with the help and cooperation of GEW Assistance in conducting research carried out by the Danish Institute for the Prevention of Discrimination Preparation for the participation in three international projects financed from the EU funds
