NETWORKING AND LOBBYING WORK
One of the fundamental pillars of BDB’s work is political networking and lobbying. BDB’s political activities aim at reforming German political and legal structures. The BDB worked actively to support the development of the EC Anti-discrimination Directives and lobbied for an Anti-discrimination Law in Germany.
BDB focuses on the following issues in their networking and political lobbying work: the participation and representation of minorities, intercultural openness, structural changes in German society, politics and economy, the continued development of the General Equal Opportunities Act (AGG) at the national and state level, as well as legal and practical support for persons affected by discrimination and racism.
The BDB is a member of
- Antidiskriminierungsverband Deutschland (advd, Gründungsmitglied)
- Netzwerk gegen Rassismus
- Forum gegen Rassismus
- Antidiskriminierungsnetzwerk Berlin-Brandenburg (ADNB)
- AG Antirassismus des Landesbeirats für Integration und Migration
We also go on the road and engage in discussion with the public on issues such as racial profiling, legislation, bullying and riots at school, health care and labour market discrimination.
