Press work of young Roma and Sinti


A participant of the Federal Youth Conference of Roma and Sinti gives an interview for Deutsche Welle. The Federal Youth Conference is the largest nationwide gathering of young Roma and Sinti (gender-sensitive: Rom*nja and Sinti*zze) in Germany and is organized once a year by Amaro Drom. The event offers space for empowerment and cohesion and is a place of visibility and exchange with interested public and press. In the youth association Amaro Drom, young Rom*nja and Sinti*zze have been working together with young non-Rom*nja and non-Sinti*zze for social participation and against racism since 2006. Many of them have a migration history. Their parents fled to Germany during the Balkan wars or came to Germany as so-called "guest workers". Others are Sinti*zze. They have been a part of German society for more than 600 years. There are also Rom*nja whose ancestors immigrated to Germany 150 years ago. Making Rom*nja and Sinti*zze visible in their diversity and as a natural part of society is one of the goals of Amaro Drom.
