EACH ONE Monitoring
EACH ONE Monitoring aims to make Anti-Black Racism in Berlin visible. With this, we want to find ways to counteract its effects as a community and as a society.
Anti-Black Racism occurs, for example, in the form of discrimination against Black people, when looking for work or housing, during controls or searches, at school or public authorities, as well as through insults and attacks on the street, in the media and in our surroundings.
Those affected or witnesses can report cases of Anti-Black Racism to us. We document these incidents and monitor them in an annual report.
Central problem areas are being addressed in our Intersectionality Reports. They make intersectional realities tangible by deconstructing complex patterns of discrimination or by addressing specific case constellations in specific areas. Here, marginalised spaces are brought into focus: prisons, psychiatries, residential homes, emergency accommodation, senior citizens’ homes, hospitals, workshops for disabled people, etc.
Trial Observation Reports document what happens when Black people claim their rights to non-discrimination or when Black people are on trial in racially charged conflicts. In that way, EACH ONE Monitoring contributes to the effective implementation of anti-discrimination laws, such as the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) and in particular the State Anti-Discrimination Act (LADG). Moreover, trial observations contribute to the reduction of institutional discrimination.
The insights gained through EACH ONE Monitoring form the basis for effective strategies to protect Black people against discrimination – in Berlin and beyond.

In the large #AFROZENSUS online survey, which will start in spring 2020, the lived realities, experiences of discrimination and perspectives of Black, African and Afrodiasporic people in Germany will be recorded for the very first time. The aim is to obtain as comprehensive a picture as possible of the experiences of people of African descent in Germany, how they assess their life in Germany and what expectations they have of politics and society.
Registers are documentations of racist, anti-Semitic, antiziganist, extreme right-wing, anti-Muslim, LGBTIQ*hostile, National Socialism trivializing, disability-hostile and social-chauvinistically motivated incidents that take place in Berlin’s districts. These incidents are reported by citizens at various contact points spread over the districts and forwarded to the coordination offices of the Berlin Registers. There they are collected, evaluated and published.
ReachOut is a counselling service for victims of right-wing, racist and antisemitic violence in Berlin. We also support and advise relatives, friends of victims and witnesses of an attack. The situation and the perspective of the victims of racist, right-wing and antisemitic violence are at the centre of our work.
