Meetings = Opportunities to Share Solutions

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

There are two Deputies representing the Roma community (Gypsies) in the Turkish Parliament. Recently, they asked us to visit the Parliament to support them when discussing the problems of the Roma people with different government ministries. We were happy to do so. 

 

We met with many members of Parliament to share the problems of the Roma and offer our suggested solutions to these problems. In particular, we talked about the support activities we can carry out together with the government in Izmir. 

 

It is critical to act together with decision-makers in this regard. We are happy to have the opportunity to contribute to policy development for the Roma people, alongside our work in Roma neighbourhoods. We are also much more hopeful about what will happen in the future.

 

Thank you!
