The purpose of the Commonwealth Equality Network ("TCEN" or "The Network") is to promote understanding and goodwill between all the peoples of the Commonwealth. The Network facilitates discussion between member organisations and promotes the principles of equality and non-discrimination.
As with The Commonwealth itself, TCEN prides itself on being a values based organisation. The values that that TCEN ascribes to are directly drawn from the Commonwealth's own values. Fundamentally the Network believes in the liberty of all individuals under the law, in equal rights for all citizens and we are committed to the principles of human dignity and equality. The Network believes in the principle of non-discrimination, of all people, on any grounds. We believe in the individual's inalienable right to participate by means of free and democratic political processes in framing the society in which they live.
Above all the the Network works to protect and promote international human rights standards of all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
