About us

“For oppressed people, it is very important to know that they are not alone. Do not let anyone tell you that what you do is insignificant.” Desmond Tutu

Irídia is an association that works in Catalonia to defend human rights, primarily civil and political. We are committed to combining direct intervention in situations of violation of rights with the development of processes of political and social incidence whose objective is to promote changes in public policies; all this through a stable, sustainable and independent structure.
