EACH ONE Anti-Discrimination is a project by Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V.. EACH ONE offers counselling for Black, African and Afrodiasporic people in Berlin in all cases of discrimination.

The UN Decade for People
of African Descent

People of African Descent, Afro-diasporic and Black people are, among other things, bound by their experiences of discrimination and racism. However, non-discrimination and equality before the law are fundamental principles of international human rights law and form the basis of the Universal Declarations of Human Rights. In 2015-2024, the United Nations proclaimed the International Decade for People of African Descent. The main objective of the International Decade should, therefore, be to promote the respect, protection and realisation of all human rights and the fundamental freedom of people of African Descent.

In 2017, a delegation commissioned within the framework of the Decade visited Germany to get a picture of the situation of Black people on site. The delegation recorded widespread structural (group-related) discrimination against Black people. At the same time, Black people represent a structurally invisible group in German public life. The delegation stressed the acute need for documentation and analysis of the human rights situation of Black people in Germany. This has been emphasized several times in the past from a human rights perspective (see e.g. CERD General Recommendation No 34 Para 3).

In light of this, EOTO e.V. understands the motto of the International UN Decade “People of African Descent: Recognition, Justice and Development” as:

> an effort to provide access to support services for people of African descent to overcome barriers, disadvantages and exclusions;

> and as an effort to find ways to protect people of African Descent against racism and discrimination by documenting and archiving knowledge on Anti-Black Racism.

The Decade provides the political window of opportunity where anti-discrimination projects, such as EACH ONE Anti-Discrimination, are given greater consideration and are being put into practice for the protection and empowerment of Black people in Germany. Emphasis on the situation of Black people in Berlin was explicitly stated in the coalition agreement and implemented through programmes of the State Anti-Discrimination Office (LADS), which is part of the Senate Administration for Justice, Consumer Protection and Anti-Discrimination. In this context, for example, the community consultation process on the needs of Black people in Berlin, carried out by Generation Adefra, was commissioned.

The project EACH ONE, which supports people of African Descent in cases of Anti-Black Racism and structural discrimination and conducts the monitoring of Anti-Black Racism in Berlin, is dedicated to the goals of the UN Decade for People of African Descent and thus sees itself as part of its implementation.
