EOTO at the Congressional Black Caucus
The Transatlantic Minority Political Leadership Conference will be held as part of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, D.C. between September 12 and 16 and Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V. is glad to be a part of it. Supported by the Open Society Foundations, our political advisor Jeff Klein will be in the U.S. capital as member of the European delegation together with Aminata Touré, Member of Parliament in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, Alfiaz Vaiya, Coordinator of the European Parliament Anti-Racism and Diversity Intergroup (ARDI), Hungary’s first Black Member of Parliament Olivio Kocsis-Cake, Ali Khan of the Open Society Initiative for Europe and many others.
The conference aims at exposing participants to legislative and other policy actions to advance the civil and human rights of underserved communities in the United States and Europe. It wants to highlight the involvement of legislators and civil society in advocating for the rights and interests of underserved communities and enable participants to return with practical ideas on how to improve the civil and human rights situation of diverse and underserved communities in their countries through legislative, advocacy, wealth creation, and other empowerment tools. The Transatlantic Minority Political Leadership Conference (TMPLC) facilitates partnerships with U.S. government institutions, civil society, private organizations and thinktanks and is also working to combat discrimination and inequality and advance empowerment, diversity, and inclusion efforts with diverse communities.
On September 12 the program will begin with panels addressing the state of human and civil rights in Europe and how to go forward.
