Contest for Young Roma - My Story, My Rights PDF Print

Deadline: 30 April 2013

Region: Europe

roma react and amnestyAmnesty International and ERGO Network have launched the contest with the aim of highlighting the voices of young Roma in Europe. The two organisations are calling young Roma to contribute to the RomaReact interactive map for the contest “My story, my rights”.

“Share your story with the world, make everyone see, through your own eyes, who the Roma are, and help us fight anti-Roma prejudice and discrimination”, say Amnesty International and ERGO.

The story sent for the completion could be anything that “concerns the contribution of Roma to their wider community; that shows that Roma should be considered equal members of society, who hold rights that must be respected”.

The story should represent the positive approach of Roma individuals and groups who want a better relationship between Roma and non-Roma and who demand equality and rights for themselves, their families and communities. It can be also about the participants.

The contest will close on 30 April 2013. The award ceremony will be held in June 2013 in Brussels.
