Media Campaign - Conference

Hello everyone

On the 11th of December, we realized a conference in the Judeţeană Library in Rm. Valcea. This was to promote our campaign "Another Brick in the Wall" within the community and let them know what we have been doing.
We presented our Problem and made a screening of our First Short Movie.

If you want to watch it you can do it here: What do you know about Rroma?

This was the poster used to promote the conference. We were happy that a lot of children were present and that somehow we managed to have a little debate about our theme.

Once again we tried to convey that we should not judge other by where they come from, what color they are or what are their beliefs.

We had a very good question from one of the kids, that was as follow: "But do I have to like everyone? Do I have to be friends with everyone?" Our answer was that: "No, you don't.", but that does not give anyone the right to discriminate based on gender, color, religion or ethnicity.

It's normal that we don't like all the people that come into our lives, but just because we don't like them, doesn't mean we can't be tolerant.

Here are some pictures from that day.

We thank you all for taking the time to listen to us and hopefully you'll start to make a difference.

Media Campaign - 1st Video

Hello everyone

Has you already know we started a Media Campaign about discrimination between Romanians and Rroma. We decided to divide this in 3 short movies.

In this first movie we will show you what the general Romanian population thinks about the Rroma communities. It was very hard for us to feel so much animosity between the two sides of the story. 

We talked to random people in the streets, to the principal of one of the schools we are working with and also to some of our friends.

Most of the Romanians have a bad impression of the Rroma communities. They say that they are stealing, begging, creating fights. And of course we know that this happens, but it happens in both sides. There are also Romanians that are stealing and creating problems, so let's not close our eyes and put the blame only on one side. 

There is work to be done on both sides so that these situations stop happening.

Start you day with a smile and you'll see it a lot easier to put the stereotypes to the side.

Be careful with the bell because it's time to wake up.

We are all human, let's stop this.
