Zuzanna is the Coordinator for Strategic Litigation at the Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights, an independent constitutional authority that safeguards human and civic freedoms and rights in Poland. Zuzanna has won more than 30 landmark civil and human rights cases, focusing especially on marginalized groups such as the LGBTQ community, migrants and refugees, and political dissidents.

Zuzanna believes that through strategic litigation she can empower people in Poland to stand up for their rights and become more engaged citizens.
