The Chosen Family Law Center, a New-York based non-profit will receive a donation of $20,000 via Erez Benari, a Seattle-based engineer who practices ethical non-monogamy. The donation is a gift to support the organizations’ goals of supporting Americans who face legal trouble related to or resulting from practicing polyamory. The Chosen Family Law Center, led by Diana Adams Esq provides free legal services and advice to such individuals and is involved with numerous advocacy activities for the polyamory community and its agenda.
“I myself was sued and harassed over being polyamorous,” said Benari in his statement. “While I was able to defeat the legal attack, many people in my community face similar challenges. I was moved by the work done by Diana Adams and her team, and was inspired by my legal battles to support the center to the best of my ability.”
The Chosen Family Law Center website reads
“The right to family life is the right of all individuals to have their established family life respected and to have and maintain family relationships. This right is recognized in a variety of international human rights instruments, including Article 16 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 23 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.”
, and the organizations’ goals are to support these rights and defend individuals who face legal challenges in that domain, whether they can afford legal help or not.
“The polyamory community has millions of members in the United States, and millions more in other countries,“ informs us Benari. “Many of them are as affluent as me, or even more, and hopefully, they will follow my lead and support the law center as well. I dream of a day where people like me can celebrate love freely, without fear of someone attacking or hurting them. I’m not happy about having had to go to court, but ultimately, having to go through this inspired me to try to make a difference.”, adds Benari.”
