Polish Society of Anti-Discrimination Law (PSAL) is a national law organization operating in the area of human rights and anti-discrimination, cooperating with a network of domestic and international organizations (the only Polish organization being a member of FIDH). The members of the society are legal practitioners interested in protection of human rights, anti-discrimination, equal treatment regardless of gender, age, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and beliefs, and disability. Our main tasks are to provide legal support to those subject to discrimination as well as advocacy activities in the field of anti-discrimination legislation. In the past 11 years PSAL has engaged in numerous strategic litigations related to equality and non-discrimination and also its activities led to important institutional changes eg. in the structures of the local governments. PSAL has established and coordinated the Coalition for Equal Opportunities – an agreement of over 60 equality and human rights organizations to strengthen the voice of groups experiencing discrimination. At the moment over 50 pro-bono legal practitioners conduct court proceedings on behalf of PSAL. PSAL is one of the few organizations in Poland preparing and presenting shadow reports to international organizations (UN, Council of Europe, EU).
