ENTKNOTEN – Counseling center against everyday racism and discrimination

You can defend yourself against discrimination!

  • A flat is not rented out to you?
  • Your application hasn’t been considered?
  • Employees of the authorities didn’t treat you fair?
  • Are you treated with disrespect?
  • You aren’t served in shops/banks?

If you are not treated equally to others due to your ethnic background, your nationality or religion, this is called discrimination.

Discrimination is prohibited. You have certain rights and you can defend yourself.

We support you!

We listen to you. If you wish so, we can search for possible solutions together and assist you with all the steps it takes. We ….

  • do research
  • write complaints
  • accompany you
  • support you with taking legal action
  • make discrimination public

We offer you individual and confidential counseling that is free of charge. If you wish so it can be made anonymously. We work independently and don’t do anything without your consent. If there is the need for it we can pay travel costs and organize translations.

Here you can get some general information, get in contact with us and schedule a counseling session or you can report a case of discrimination.

Workshop for parents and reference persons of children affected by racism

Schwarze Frau erhebt ZeigefingerThe workshop addresses parents and reference persons of children exposed to racist discrimination. We invite Black People and People of Color who experience racism and have children of their own or in their personal environment. We also address white parents, white siblings or flatmates who live with Black Children/ Children of Color.  These family constellations occur for example when one parent is not white, when white parents adopt a Black Child or when Black Children/ Children of Color live in a mostly white shared flat.

We discuss how racism is embedded in our society and how this affects the everyday life of children. Our own role will also be examined and reflected as well as problems

that white reference persons have to face. We want to work out together how to talk about discrimination within the scope of family or personal relationships. The workshop aims at  developing strategies to reinforce the children sustainably in their development, to develop a positive self-image and in general to cope with stressful events.

There will be stages during the workshop in which participants who have experienced racism will be able to sharetheir own experiences.

The workshop will be carried out by ManuEla Ritz.
