Description of the city
Population: 8.851 million
The generation of a cultural change that allows every person and determined groups of people, the enjoyment of their rights and freedoms without any discrimination.
The government of Mexico City, through its Council for the Prevention and Elimination of Discrimination, works for the right to equality and non-discrimination of all people living in or passing through Mexico City, particularly the population groups who are potentially vulnerable towards becoming victims of discrimination; being the LGBTTTI population, one of those groups.
The present agency provides legal attention and orientation for those who have suffered discrimination and conducts affirmative actions throughout workshops to promote a culture of equal treatment towards the public administration and the private sector. We also ensure the compliance of the capital’s Law for the Prevention and Elimination of Discrimination, analyse and propose amendments in the legal framework of Mexico City and elaborate general guidelines of public policies in favour of a culture of equality.
