Voices of Resistance 2020 – Lilla from Hungary

This resistance story is coming from Lilla who is a Hungarian Romani woman, calling us for cooperation against prejudices and racism:

“Hello Everyone! I am Lilla, Roma from Hungary. I studied Romani Studies and Social Work at the university and currently I work in Khetanipe Association to help Roma people.16 May is the Romani Resistance Day, this day means to me the cooperation. The cooperation between us Roma’s to step up together against prejudice and racism. I encourage every Roma to be brave and stand up and fight for equal rights!”

The ‘Voices of Resistance’ online campaign invites every young Roma to testify their own resistance stories! Through this online campaign we want to empower young Roma people to share their good examples of staying active in such difficult times of crisis as well. Stay tuned, watch our videos and be part of our online resistance!

The Voices of Resistance campaign is part of the Roma Youth Voices Project, coordinated by Phiren Amenca and funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the DG Justice, European Commission.
