EAPN Portugal, in partnership with the State Secretariat for Citizenship and Equality, is currently promoting an anti-discrimination Campaign on Roma Communities #direitoaseroquequiserem (therighttobeanythingwewant). This Campaign was launched on the 24th of June – “Roma Communities National Day” and its main aim is to seek to positively influence the social perception of Roma Communities among the general society, namely by confronting it with the unfair and violently discriminatory way in which this ethnic minority group is treated on a daily basis, thus calling for a change of behaviour.
The fight against discrimination necessarily involves an intervention that promotes information and knowledge about Portuguese Roma citizens, since its lack contributes to the development and the worsening of stereotypes and prejudices.
