Our Place, Our Space, Our Case
Together with our members in Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Turkey we are implementing a Roma Women Empowerment campaign with the slogan Our Place, Our Space, Our case. The campaign is part of ERGO’s Roma Women Empowerment project (2012-2013) supported by the IPA programme of the European Union. Through this project we invest in the capacity of grassroots Roma women to interact and participate in their democracies to become equal citizens, while keeping their identity. Roma women are empowered to gain strength and power to take control of their own lives by becoming visible agents of change within their communities and by raising their voices to influence policies and programmes affecting them.
Our Place, Our Space, Our Case stands for women that invite people to their ‘place’, who visualise their ‘space’ and who formulate their ‘case’ for improvement to relevant policy makers and stakeholders. The campaign has an on-line component on the RomaReact website to visualise the places, spaces and cases of Roma women in their societies.
