Rapid Response Grants – Urgent Action Fund

Approved – December 2013.

Number of grants: 1

Association of Roma, Novi Bečej

  • RSD: 141.690,00
  • Project: Activists of the group are exposed to different forms of harassment – phone threats or ‘silent’ phone calls, provocations, etc. It increased lately having in mind that they are sharing the office with Roma lesbian organization, but also due to their more frequent engagement with Women in Black and more visible public actions. Threats are coming from ultra-nationalist organization, very active in Novi Becej, since they feel supported from the current local authorities.
  • Safe space is necessary not only for the activists of the group, but also for the women who survived the violence and who are coming to Association since the support to VAW survivors is the main activity of the group.
