BDB e.V. has set itself the goal of overcoming the exclusion and discrimination of so-called “minorities” in society. The focus here is on working against racism / ethnic discrimination. We would like to promote consciousness and awareness for the topics of discrimination and racism in society and advocate equality in different places. We want to support those people most affected by racism to become empowered in dealing the racism they deal with day-to-day and to overcome the hurdles for equal participation in society and politics.
We see our work for a just and respectful coexistence as a contribution to a peaceful and enriched society. We work to prevent racism and other forms of discrimination in response to specific cases of discrimination, but also to prevent discrimination more generally, for example through awareness-building and demands for greater equality in legislation and institutional structures.
We see our work for a just and respectful coexistence as a contribution to a peaceful and enriched society.
Our work focuses include anti-discrimination consultation, training and workshops as well as networking and lobbying work. Our aim is to harmonise the different work areas with each other so as to generate learning effects and synergies between them. We do not only focus our attention on the individual, but also on the political and institutional levels of discrimination.
