Mashkar Kehilot (Between Communities) project in Hungary got started!

Joint project of Phiren Amenca & Tom Lantos Insitute

The project aims to strengthen activism and cooperation of Roma, Jewish and non-Roma/Jewish youth in Hungary in order to challenge antigypsyism and antisemitism and to find common points for cooperation. Our aim is to disseminate already existing educational materials on these issues in Hungarian as well as to encourage and support the participants to develop and carry out joint actions to combat antisemitism and antigypsyism.

The project includes:

  • translation and dissemination of these educational materials in Hungarian:

The European “Boogie Man” Complex: Challenging Antigypsyism through Non-formal Education, an educational toolkit: http://phirenamenca.eu/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/The-European-Boogie-Man-Complex-An-Educational-Toolkit1.pdf
