Open your eyes against discrimination
DiscriKamira Project is funded by the General Directorate of Justice of the European Commission. Aims to promote the application of the principle of equal treatment of people regardless of their racial or ethnic origin in Spain, Italy and Finland, through different types of training and awareness activities, targeting different key agents, such as lawyers, state security forces and bodies, media professionals and the Roma population.
The objective is to promote the Roma population and especially, the fight against discrimination and effective equality.
In addition, we intend to help victims by launching a specific free legal aid in different cities for victims of hate crimes and discrimination, through bar associations.
With the launch of the APP SOS KAMIRA and the collection of cases of hate crimes and discrimination, we want to encourage victims to denounce, for an effective application of this type of legislation in order the society to evolve towards tolerance.
This project has innovative aspects, since it empowers the Roma woman and the victims and gives them mechanisms to be able to defend themselves. The work is being done to improve assistance to victims of discrimination and anti-Gypsyism with adequate means.
With the activities of this project, in addition to raising awareness of existing stereotypes and prejudices, the detection and legal assistance in discriminatory and anti-Gypsy situations, the project works directly with the Roma community, with actions that promote their empowerment.
Finally, the celebration of the II Congress on discrimination, hate crimes and anti-Gypsyism in the city of Madrid is planned. With the assistance and intervention of the countries participating in the project, as well as legal professionals, media, security forces and associations of victims of discrimination. In the Congress round tables will be held on different topics related to discrimination and hate crimes in order to allow attendees to share experiences and expand their knowledge in the subjects taught.
