No Borders Project - Social Action Center

The No Borders project of the non-profit organization Social Action Center was begun in 2006 as an informal initiative by grassroots activists in response to the unlawful extradition of 11 refugees from Ukraine to Uzbekistan. This initiative’s goal was to attract public attention to civic protests and problems of refugees in Ukraine. Among the sphere of interests of No Borders activists were freedom of movement, refugees’ rights in Ukraine, and counteraction to xenophobia and racism in Ukrainian society. Together with other human rights NGOs and international organizations, No Borders works to provide legal support to refugees and asylum seekers, monitor xenophobia and racism, provide legal support to victims of hate crimes and discrimination, and train and education various target groups on these topics.
