“For me, Frank Bold is first and foremost an organization of people I respect for their human qualities. Thanks to them, Frank Bold is able to fulfil the true purpose of law in a democracy – the protection of justice, personal freedom, and solidarity. We didn't choose the name of our organization by chance. Approaching the law in this way requires boldness and honesty. My personal motivation to be a part of Frank Bold is linked to his courage to step out of the calm legal waters and address the root causes of the fundamental challenges we face as a society.”
