We are happy that we have been awarded the Roma Spirit 2022 award in the category – Act of the Year – for our work on the protection of the rights of Roma children from Hermanovce.

We won the award for achieving a strategic court decision, according to which the education of Roma children in special classes was illegal. We thank them for their trust and persistence in the ongoing litigation.

We would like to dedicate the award primarily to all Roma men and women who stood up for their rights and demanded justice in the Slovak courts. This effort of theirs is important not only for them, but also for our entire society.

We thank the jury for appreciating our work.
