Voices of Resistance Campaign 2020 – Elena from France

Elena is a Roma woman from Romania, living in France and working there with Roma communities, her message is to fight every day for Roma rights, human rights and against antigypsyism:

“Hello Everyone! I’m Elena, Roma woman from Romania living in France. I’m a social worker and I’m working with Roma communities. For me, the 16th May is about my daily struggle for human rights, for Roma rights, and also the fight against antigypsyism. I wish you all the best and a lot of courage!”

Special thanks to Anina Ciuciu! 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.
