Survey on the topic of “Discrimination in Germany

The Initiative Black People in Germany and various NGOs of the Black/PoC community and NGOs.

Dear ladies, dear gentlemen, dear interested parties,

On September 1, the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency (ADS) launches the largest survey to date on the topic of “Discrimination in Germany”.

Until November 30, all people over the age of 14 living in Germany can comment on their own experiences or observations of discrimination. This survey, which we are conducting together with the Berlin Institute for Empirical Integration and Migration Research, is intended to make discrimination visible. We also want to know what effects discrimination has on people and how they deal with it. The Anti-Discrimination Agency will present the results of the survey and recommendations for action to the German Bundestag.

In order to achieve the greatest possible participation in the survey and to raise awareness of the issue of discrimination among a broad public, we need your support.

We would be very pleased if you draw attention to the survey via your networks, your website, your publications and newsletters, and as part of your events.

Attached you will find the banner for the survey in 3 formats. You can put this on your website and social media pages and link to it with the URL link.

At this URL you will find all information about the survey and , as of September 1, 2015, also the direct link to the questionnaire. This will also be available online in plain language.

As print materials we have flyers, postcards, stickers, posters in DIN A2 and of course the questionnaire. You can order these materials free of charge from the Anti-Discrimination Agency. Here you can find the flyer -> Flyer_DINlang_09_06

To do this, please let us know how many copies you need in each case and to which address they should be sent. Contact persons for your order are Stefanie Bewersdorff and Kristin Döge (contact details see signature.)

If you would like to share the survey information with your partner organizations, associations or interested individuals via email, you can use the draft email attached.

We will be happy to provide you with the results of the survey. We can also evaluate them according to criteria that are particularly relevant to you; for example, results on all persons in a state or on all participants with disabilities.

If you have any questions or need further information, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you very much for your support!

With kind regards

on behalf of

Kristin Döge
