Empowering Change: Reflecting on European Laws Training with Roma Connect

Saturday December 9th, 2023

The fight against discrimination within the Roma community took a powerful step forward with a recent training session organized by the Roma Connect Project. Participants gained invaluable knowledge about European laws designed to combat discrimination, paving the way for a future where equality reigns.

Catalina Olteanu, a true inspiration:

The training was led by none other than Catalina Olteanu, a remarkable figure who shattered glass ceilings by becoming the first Romani woman on the Board of Directors at the National Council for Combating Discrimination in Romania. Her insights were instrumental in shaping a deep understanding of the legal landscape across Romania, Hungary, Greece, and Spain.

Delving into the legal framework:

The session equipped participants with the knowledge to navigate the complex world of EU institutions and laws safeguarding citizens from discrimination. They explored key points such as:

  • Identifying the protective institutions within the EU structure.
  • Understanding the specific laws applicable in each of the project countries.
  • Recognizing the critical gap that often exists between the existence of laws and their effective implementation.

Knowledge is power, action is change:

The training shed light on a crucial reality: while laws exist, ensuring their proper implementation remains a significant challenge. However, the Roma Connect Project emphasizes that knowing our rights empowers us to advocate for their effective enforcement.

This powerful message serves as a call to action. By turning knowledge into action, participants are equipped to demand the rightful protection of their community’s rights.

Together, building a future free from discrimination:

The Roma Connect Project firmly believes that education and awareness are the cornerstones of lasting change. Through initiatives like this training session, the project empowers individuals and communities to pave the way for a future where discrimination has no place.

Join the movement!

The fight for equality is far from over, but the Roma Connect Project stands as a beacon of hope. By supporting their efforts, you can contribute to building a more just and equitable society for all.
