We at BDB e.V. (Bund für Antidiskriminierungs- und Bildungsarbeit / Association for Anti-Discrimination and Educational Work) have been offering counselling for and training in the field of anti-discrimination and anti-racism to people affected by racism since 1996. In addition, we are work together with our networks to shed light on relevant legislation and state structures in a way that is critical of discrimination. Our goal is to create a stronger awareness of discrimination and racism within society, to counteract discrimination on various levels and to contribute to equal coexistence in society.
