Project Description

Diaspora Mittendrin

Diaspora Mittendrin: Empowerment of Black people through anti-discrimination counselling and educational offers.

Since 2016, the BDB e.V. has been carrying out the project “Diaspora Mittendrin” for the empowerment of Black people, Afrodiasporic people and people of African origin with a migration history through various empowerment offers. Our goal is to improve the living situation of Black people and to give them a stronger voice in society through our diverse services.

Our team consists of experienced counsellors who have themselves experienced racism and offer peer-to-peer counselling. This means that our counsellors are also Black people with a migration history and can therefore respond particularly well to the needs and experiences of those seeking advice. We work intersectionally and also take into account other grounds of discrimination such as age, disability, income and gender.

In addition to anti-discrimination counselling, we also offer empowerment workshops and information events on various topics in the field of anti-discrimination, with a focus on racism. Our events are aimed at community organisations, associations and groups that are interested in hosting such an event.

We believe that everyone has the right to live free from discrimination. That is why we are committed to empowering Black people and fighting racism. If you need support or have questions about what we offer, please feel free to contact us.

New offer: Psychological Peer-to-Peer Counselling

As part of our project “Diaspora Mittendrin” we now offer peer-to-peer counselling by a qualified psychologist and psychotherapist who focuses on anti-Black racism and experiences of discrimination.

An experienced psychological psychotherapist offers sensitive and professional support through their deep empathy and understanding of counselling that is critical of power and racism.

Do you want to talk about your experiences of racism? Do you need support with challenges in your personal environment (family, friends, school, work)? Are you looking for a protected and professional setting to receive support? Would you like to explore specific questions and concerns and work out suitable approaches? Then contact us to schedule an appointment by email at bdb@bdb-
