ICCL is proud to have been at the forefront of many changes which have advanced equality in Ireland over our history.
We strive for full equality for everyone who lives in Ireland and for strong protections against discrimination in all its forms. We are committed to working in solidarity with all groups affected by discrimination and inequality in Irish society. We have identified a number of priority areas where we contribute to the strengthening of law and policy towards identified groups in Irish society. These include calling for legislation against hate crime, working towards reproductive justice, and amplifying the voices of grassroots organisations and activists.
ICCL was one of three organisations which fought the succesful marriage equality campaign in 2015. We also formed part of the Together for Yes campaign platform which lead to the repeal of the 8th Amendment and paved the way for legal abortion in Ireland.
ICCL works in solidarity with organisations who represent minority groups, such as LGBTI people, Travellers and Roma, migrants and asylum seekers and those with disabilities.
