For many years Women in Exi­le & Friends have been making sum­mer tours to dif­fe­rent Ger­man federal sta­tes to con­nect with other refu­gee women*, espe­cial­ly tho­se living in lager. This sum­mer we will move to Ham­burg, Bre­men and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

We want to empower refu­gee women* to beco­me poli­ti­cal­ly acti­ve, in order to fight for their rights as women* living in this socie­ty. We also want to address the ques­ti­on of ope­ning poli­ti­cal struc­tures to refu­gee women*. Our main poli­ti­cal fight is against the lager sys­tem. We belie­ve the shared and iso­la­ted accom­mo­da­ti­ons work as a cata­lyst to sexu­al vio­lence, trau­mas and depres­si­ons lea­ding to (attemp­ted) suicides.

We want to:

  • bring into public iso­la­ti­on, racism, sexism, reports on trau­mas on tho­se expe­ri­en­cing slee­p­less nights for fear of depor­ta­ti­on and the effects of the coro­na pandemic.
  • encou­ra­ge and net­work with refu­gee women*, groups and indi­vi­du­als working with refu­gee women*.
  • break bor­ders pre­ven­ting our par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on and build brid­ges to con­nect us to communities.
  • be given the oppor­tu­ni­ty to choo­se whe­re we want to live in dignity.
  • con­nect with the refu­gee women* figh­t­ing for their children‘s right to birth certificates.
