In the last years, ERGO Network, ternYpe – International Roma Youth Network and other partners of the “Alliance against Antigypsyism” have achieved great progress in the recognition of antigypsyism on the European political level. The European Roma Grassroots Organisations Network (ERGO) with its member organisations in Central Europe and the Western Balkans and the Alliance want to address the current situation of many Roma in Europe with the large-scale campaign “Decade to Counter Antigypsyism” which started in 2022 targeting the general public, to raise awareness for antigypsyism and contribute to changing attitudes towards Roma in the majority society.
