Fall Academy Amaro Drom 2018


Members of Amaro Drom at the 2018 Fall Academy in Berlin. At the event, which takes place once a year, full-time and volunteer staff develop strategies and priorities for the association's work. At the Fall Academy 2018, they defined the topics of the right to stay, anti-discrimination and empowerment, as well as lobbying and public relations work as focal points for the work of the federal association. Many young people involved in the association are threatened with deportation. To support them better in their struggle for the right to stay is an urgent concern of Amaro Drom. Amaro Drom dedicates itself to the area of anti-discrimination and empowerment in the context of nationwide projects, among other things, by training multipliers in the area of political education. Through public relations work and educational offers, Amaro Drom contributes to creating awareness of and counteracting discrimination against Rom*nja and Sin*zze in all areas of society.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.
