OUR Mission

For Roma By Roma

Opening Statement:

The World Roma Federation is a nonprofit organization established in 2017. It’s core objective, to promote and advocate for social reforms, including laws that protect the rights and privileges of the Romani people of the World.  Our organization believes it is time for the deregulation of separative and discriminative practices, which are often ignored by world governments.  There are laws implemented by the governments of the world defining civility and affording human rights to its constituents.  These laws define social norms and inherently preserve the construct of that countries society.  One thing that holds true amongst all democratic governments are that all men are created equal and that all men have the right to govern oneself; if, his or actions coincide with the social norms of society.  On that premise alone, the Roma should be granted with the same civil liberties and privileges afforded all other constituents who are not of Roma lineage or descent.  The Romani are not migrants or immigrants they are naturalized citizen of the state, because they were born in Europe or they were born in the United States and so on and so forth.  Therefore, the laws of a country should not promote antigypsy sentiments of naturalized citizen but encourage and acknowledge the individual’s citizenship on the merits of birth and not ancestry. The inclusion of the Romani people into modern society should not be a difficult task because it is their right as citizens, not a privilege.

Our Mission

To promote, educate, and advocate for a change in public policies and legislature for the inclusion of the Romani People

The Roma Congress 2020

In 2017 our organization the World Roma Federation held a Roma congress in Budapest Hungary .  Through the outcome of this meeting  we formulated a 22-member state coalition,which is a network of other factions working together under the World Roma Federation for the same purpose and goals.   This is how we came up with the name of our organization the World Roma Federation, because we are a federation of countries working together for the betterment of the Romani people.
