Atbalsti MARTU



15.11.2018

In the days when Latvia celebrates its centenary anniversary our friends abroad often ask us what they should wish for, what does Latvia need for its next 100 years? Here in Latvia and MARTA Centre, we ask ourselves- what can we each do for Latvia to make the next century more dignified for people and more successful and united for the society as a whole?

To that question there is only one answer- we need support! In this case – material support from our friends and allies to help us create Latvia in which women and men, girls and boys are equal, and children have their parents, where violence is not widespread and accepted and the best interests of children are taken into account.

It is in our power to join in and support these ideas!

To keep supporting women in Latvia and their children we need financial support, and we kindly ask you to donate to MARTA Centre.

For this message to reach our supporters and allies all over the world please help us to spread this message by sharing it.

MARTA stands in solidarity with the Irish colleagues
13.02.2017

Centre MARTA has received an invitation to support our Irish colleagues in their request for their Parliament to pass the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Bill today, on the 14th of February. It recognises prostitution and wider sexual abuse as both a cause and consequence of inequality between women and men, and shifts the power balance in favour of the vulnerable while holding perpetrators to account. The Sexual Offences Bill sends a clear message that Ireland is standing up for the most vulnerable women, children and men in the society. Therefore, Centre MARTA stands in solidarity with our Irish colleagues and supports them by signing their plea.
