There is a very important issue in our Community that needs our urgent attention. There is a need to critically interrogate how interculturalism is being practised in the City of Berlin and other intercultural spaces or “safe spaces”. Marginalised Black people still face systemic and structural exclusion. This happens even though people with good intentions are involved but have no time during their daily routine to critically reflect their actions through new perspectives.

Due to the constant criticism and self reflection on intercultural interactions, we established the African Refugee Infopoint in Berlin in 2018.. Here we created a Platform for Self-Empowerment and built a Structure for political work based on human rights especially for marginalised Black people without privilege. As an independent initiative we work on a voluntary basis to offer consultations to our target group and organize events to empower, raise consciousness and Inspiration on African cultural and political levels to individuals which we bring into intercultural spaces.

Due to the difficulties experiencing from discrimination based on access for Black people there is a strong need to find a solutions. Equal access for everyone is based on the willingness of the integration of the majority Society towards Black refugees. Above the sensibility to understand different cultures, patience is needed to overcome misunderstandings. There is a lot of communication-work to do so that integration works.

For this reason we are planning an event on the participation in Voting Rights and Volunteering work in intercultural spaces in Berlin. There is a connection between the three topics which can help bring us as individuals and we in our community closer to equality. To explore these opportunities together we invite you to participate as a guest or representative of your organization.
