Roma Dignity is a non-profit organization founded by young Belgian Roma. Since 2011, we have worked to document the genocide of the Roma, in partnership with Yahad – In Unum. This work is undertaken in the hopes of helping Roma learn about their past and reclaim their dignity.
Our objectives are the following:
Conduct research trips to interview Roma survivors in Eastern Europe with our partner, Yahad-In Unum. Collect and translate testimonies on the Roma genocide and persecutions.
Educate young Roma, decision makers and the public at large about Roma history in order to develop an engaged, informed public.
Dispel stereotypes through a better understanding of Roma identity and their situation today.
Work towards the inclusion and integration of Roma in Belgium and Europe.
