Make Roma (NGOs) equal actors in the policies targeting them! Sign and the letter will be send to EU officials and EU prime ministers!

    1. Petition by

      ERGO Network

The situation of Roma in Europe is catastrophic. While dedicated efforts are urgently needed, we observe lack of a sense of urgency to forcefully invest in equal citizenship for Roma! Therefor we ask all relevant European Commission officials and prime ministers of Member States to take concrete measures in the next programming period (2014-2020) to break the status quo.

We want them to carefully read the joint proposal: 'Measures Minimum Measures for Roma Participation in the EU and MS policy processes' (see: http://www.ergonetwork.org/ergo-network/news/) with concrete proposals for:

- How to set the right mechanisms so that grassroots Roma can become actors in the process of change to alter their own situation

- How to recognize and involve Roma expertise by setting up mechanisms for regular and transparent dialogue with Roma civil society and experts

- How to invest in the capacity and strategic development of Roma civil society by setting up targeted funding for Roma and Roma initiatives

 

Sign the petition and the letter below will be send to 20 EU representatives and 27 prime ministers!

      Equal rights need to be universal. Not a buffet which we pick and choose.

      it is obvious that you should include the Roma in making policies regarding their situation

      The current worsening situation asks for an action, not political statements, strategic action in cooperation og governmental and NGO stakeholders with sufficient funding of both.
