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.
