Self presentation alliance
The alliance Decolonize Berlin is composed of a civil society network of black, diasporic, postcolonial and development initiatives, associations and individual activists. This alliance is committed to the critical examination of the history and present of colonialism and racism, to the recognition and reappraisal of colonial injustice, and to a decolonization of society as a whole.
The content-related work takes place in working groups, in which individuals but also initiatives/associations exchange ideas on specific topics, work and plan projects. They support the work of the association Decolonize Berlin significantly and coordinate their activities with the board. Each working group has a spokesperson.
