RomaReact is a blogging space developed by ERGO Network and individual young Roma activists. Anyone can share their stories on RomaReact in order to create a new narrative for Roma.
RomaReact is about us. We are people – both Roma and non-Roma – who want to shape the public debate on Roma inclusion. We want our voices to be heard. We are connecting through RomaReact, an interactive multimedia mapping platform that allows us to share everyday Roma realities and to challenge the stereotypes and prejudices that Roma face. Through RomaReact we build a global online community seeking social change and justice.
Through the RomaReact website we want to present a positive image of Roma by sharing the culture, fun and real stories of real people. We want to promote Romani people as integral to our countries, as well as promote a sense of responsibility of each of us to contribute to a fair and equal society.
RomaReact is built on the experiences of ERGO Network and its members and friends who focus primarily on Roma grassroots empowerment and mobilization. Together, we can promote our activities and events and we are looking forward to yours.
We use RomaReact as a digital space to mobilize even more young people to actively participate in society and become agents in their own lives as well as equal and respected citizens.

Our co-host @Peter_Pollak from the @EPPGroup sent us a video message:
📣 These days we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. In the EU there are still too many children whose rights are not protected.
ERGO Network director @hrabanova closes the conference:
📢 The #grassroots level is very important to achieve change for Roma on local level. 8 mayors from the Western Balkans are here to share experiences.
Thank you all for contributing to this important debate!
Szabolcs Schmidt of @EU_Justice shares negative results of last @EurobarometerEU regarding #antigypsyism, but also:
📣 The good news is, the situation in education has not worsened for Romani children in the last years...
@LaviBanu @romaeducation @SorayaPostFi
ERGO Network co-chair and former MEP @SorayaPostFi is chairing our conference.
📣 If the EU took its values seriously, we would not have to speak about access to education at all.

📣EU social policies such as the Pillar of Social Rights need to work better for affected people, and they must be involved in developing policies.
