Today the European Commission launched the European Action Plan against racism. An important milestone from this European Commission.

Samira Rafaela:

“I am proud of the efforts of the Anti-Racism and Diversity Intergroup and the European Parliament, who have worked hard to raise awareness about structural racism in Europe. Sometimes it is exhausting to keep repeating it, but I have to admit that launching this plan gives me more hope. Not its time for action.”

“Member States must bear their responsibility. Civil society and local representatives must be closely involved. But our own EU institutions must also become more diverse and inclusive. The European Commission will focus on all these matters.”
