1 No home, no rights: supporting justice for homeless people Avvocato di strada experience Strasbourg, February 2013

2 Born in Bologna in 2007 and operating today in 31 italian cities, Avvocato di strada is an association of lawyers. The challenge is to provide a free and qualified legal protection to homeless people who are every day deprived of their fundamental rights.

3 The association provides in every city a front office organized as a proper law firm in places such as kitchen-soups and dormitories, thus getting closer the lawyers and the homeless. All the lawyers are volunteers: in case of victory the compensation costs are donated to the association in order to pay the future legal costs.
