Ladies and gentlemen, Through this brochure we would like to introduce the 2014 EGPA conference. About 200 policemen and women from all over Europe and the USA will be taking part in the 2014 conference in Berlin. We will be looking at Eastern Europe – particularly Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. Russia is to be given a special signal. I warmly invite you to take part in the conference or support our organisation. Be a part of us should be seen as an invitation to female and male police officers from throughout Europe who want to work together with us for equal rights and against discrimination on account of sexual orientation. Thomas Ulmer Federal Chairman VelsPol-Deutschland e.V.
