Federal Youth Conference of Roma and Sinti 2019


Participant at the kick-off event of the Federal Youth Conference of Roma and Sinti 2019 in Berlin. 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.
