The Civil Rights Association (La Asociación por los Derechos Civiles in Spanish) is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-governmental Argentine organization created in 1995 with the mission of contributing to the assurance of a legal institutional culture that guarantees the peoples fundamental rights, based on respect for the Constitution and democratic values. (www.adc.org.ar) A few of their main issues include rights to freedom of expression, access to information, and sexual and reproductive rights.
ADC publicizes and promotes respect for peoples fundamental rights. They defend the rights of residents of Argentina, especially those with limited access to justice because of discrimination. Also, ADC contributes to strengthening the democratic institutions with special emphasis on those that impart justice, such as local and federal courts as well as the Supreme Court. At the congressional level ADC monitors legislative voting and transparency, and watches the constitutional limits of the exercise of Presidential powers as well.
