The Assosiation of German Sinti and Roma, State Assosiation of Baden-Württemberg has its origin in the civil rights work of the German Sinti and Roma who constantly emphasized their isolation and discrimination during the 1970s. The charitable organization was founded in 1986. The foundation wants to highlight in particular the aspects of empowerment, education, and equality. As a consulting office for civil rights the foundation equally is a dialogue partner for the society of the minority and for the public institutions of the majority.
