Mission always in the DNA of Polis Aperta that for years has launched online information campaigns, through social networks and creating opportunities for contact with society. In this regard, the Board of Directors presented a new project aimed at combating discrimination achieved thanks to the qualified support of the criminal lawyer Matteo Mammini. The action plan to make the battle against prejudice ever more incisive was the protagonist of the debate among the members. A clear sign that the ideal at the base of the association, to constitute a bridge between the LGBTI community and the heart of the state, that is police forces and armed forces, is increasingly an indispensable requirement for the progress of society.
Those who wear the uniform have chosen to put themselves at the service of all citizens, including minorities. Polis Aperta works and exists so that the protective role of the police forces never fails. Today and tomorrow, like yesterday, the action of Polis Aperta does not stop, thanks to information campaigns, public debates and training activities directed at the agents who confront the whole society every day on the road, the goal is to break down the wall of injury. In fact, it is clear that only by showing ourselves as we are, by putting ourselves at the service of the whole society, we can become the change that we would like to see realized in our country.
