You Don't Have Much, but You Have the Power!

The project reflects the high level of discrimination against the Roma in the Czech Republic. This fact is well known and in essence tolerated, but it is usually not officially acknowledged. According to a survey conducted in 2013 as much as 78% inhabitants of the Czech Republic have a negative view of the Roma. The Roma have minimal representation in the decision making processes, but they also do not actively seek it. The main goal of the project is to involve Roma in the fight against ethnic discrimination through a statewide campaign accompanied by motivational activities in the South Moravia region, professional counseling, and legal aid. The project will create a citizen platform, a group of active Roma and other people who, through their own involvement, will help  improve the situation. The secondary goal is to establish good collaboration between IQ Roma servis and other institutions (especially the Czech Trade Inspection Authority, the Office of the Public Defender of Rights, the police, etc.) in order to ensure coordinated approach to solving discrimination cases. We will also provide methodical support to employees of both non-governmental organizations and state institutions, by creating a methodical manual, preparing an educational course and an expert conference.
