Voices of Resistance Campaign 2020 – Elisa from Romania

Let us introduce a young Romani woman from Romania who shares her resistance story with us:

“Hi! My name is Elisa and I am part of the Village Claims group from Valea Seacă. Roma Resistance Day for me means balance and self-confidence. Self-confidence because discrimination can come from many parts: teachers, authorities, and people. And if you trust yourself, that’s how you’ll show your true worth. I chose to be part of this campaign because I care about young Roma girls and boys.”

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.
