Publication of the Intersectionality Report "Black Living Realities and the Berlin Police".

Dear Colleagues and Supporters,         

we would like to cordially invite you & you to the publication of our first intersectionality report “Black Life Realities and the Berlin Police” by Each One Antidiscrimination – A Project of Each One Teach One e.V.:    

The May 25, 2020 killing of George Floyd sparked worldwide protests against anti-Black police violence. Even for white, Western majority societies, the violent, traumatizing, and deadly consequences of racist police violence suddenly seemed visible. The impression arose that we could finally talk about structural and institutionalized racism in Germany as well.

Considering that data on structural racism in Germany is lacking and that there is a compelling need for qualitative and community-based research, we would like to use this intersectionality report to point out voids and contribute to making hidden Black life realities visible.

The release of the report will take place as a digital event on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. In addition to the launch of the report, we look forward to an engaging panel discussion with the following experts:  

    Dr. Céline Barry – EOTO member, former project manager and consultant at Each One Antidiscrimination, member of KOP (Campaign for Victims of Racist Police Violence), research associate at the Center for Interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender Studies at the TU Berlin

    Biplab Basu – employee of the counseling center Reachout, co-founder of KOP Berlin (Campaign for Victims of Racist Police Violence)

    Bafta Sarbo – board member of the Initiative Black People in Germany (ISD)

The event will be moderated by Jeff Kwasi Klein – Project Manager Each One Antidiscrimination.

Intersectionality Report “Black Living Realities and the Berlin Police Force
With the intersectionality report “Black Life Realities and the Berlin Police”, Each One Antidiscrimination aims at a fundamental understanding of racism and discrimination towards Black, African and Afrodiasporic people in Berlin. We intend to make visible dimensions of discrimination against Black people and structural disadvantages by the police in an intersectional way. Considering the fact that data on structural racism in Germany is lacking and that there is a compelling need for qualitative and community-based research, we would like to use this report to point out gaps and contribute to making hidden Black realities visible.

Warm regards from your / your Each One Team
