The Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ) is a newly founded non-profit organization based in Berlin. Its mission is to make anti-discrimination and equality policy more inclusive and effective in Europe. CIJ tackles intersecting forms of structural inequality and discrimination through legal and policy advocacy, policy research, and trainings.
The aim of the conference is to celebrate the launch of the Center for Intersectional Justice, recall the story behind this initiative, and to provide an opportunity for social justice advocates and activists across Europe to connect. Opportunities, challenges, and steps ahead will be discussed.
Around what issues shall advocacy efforts be centered? How can the political obstacles be overcome? How can synergies, cooperation, and common goal setting be promoted with other organizations active in the field of anti-discrimination?
