Political Parties

    Movilh has been defined by the press as the “Political arm of the of the sexual minorities”.  This reputation of Movilh commits the organization to a permanent contact with representatives from all political parties with or without presence in the National Congress, with the objective to promote policy against discrimination

   This way Movilh has been keeping a dialogue with presidents, boards, commissions and/or leaders within the parliamentary collectives such as the Christian Democrats (DC), Communist party (PC), Party for Democracy (PPD), Humanist Party (PH), Progressive Party (PRO), Radical Social democratic Party (PRSD), Regional Party of the Independents (PRI), Socialist Party (PS), National Renewal (RN) and Independent Democratic Union (UDI).

__________________________________________

Parliament

    Movilh has had ten meetings with different representatives of the parliament, and those meetings have been increasing because of the transformation of values and culture within the country, to which a great part the Chilean movement for sexual minorities is responsible. Thanks to these meetings, Movilh has achieved legal amendments, preparation of legal projects and approval of declarations against discrimination in the National Congress.
