Fighting discrimination for 25 years!
BDB e.V. (BDB) is a self-organisation of people with different national and cultural backgrounds who are active in the field of human rights, anti-discrimination, anti-racism, asylum and gender. Since 1996, BDB has set itself the goal of helping to overcome exclusion and discrimination in society. The focus here is on work against racism / ethnic discrimination (disadvantage due to origin, culture, “skin colour” and nationality).
We see our work to encourage just and respectful treatment as a contribution to a peaceful coexistence and the development of a lively and enriched society and a stable democracy.
We work in response to concrete cases of discrimination, but also concentrate on prevention in order to prevent racism and other forms of discrimination, e.g. through workshops and training as well as with demands for more justice in legislation and institutional structures. Our aim is to coordinate the different areas of anti-discrimination work (counselling, trainings and political networking/lobbying) in order to create learning effects and synergies between them. We focus is not only on the individual-interpersonal level of discrimination and racism, but also on the political and institutional level.
