The Roma. Who are they? What is their story? Why is an action group being formed on their behalf?
As a longtime member of Holy Blossom I found that I was looking to be involved as a volunteer in a group that would be both dynamic, creative, and, above all, helpful. Freda Muscovitch- the impetus behind Holy blossom’s Out of the Cold project suggested to me that the Roma Action committee would be the answer.
After several meetings I feel that I understand some of the issues the Roma are facing in Europe and in Canada and hope that I can be of help- both as an advocate on their behalf and as a volunteer/witness at immigration hearings.
There is much work to be done and I am pleased to be able to help.
