International Roma Day!
April 8 is International Roma Day. This day was designated by the International Romania Union in 1990 to celebrate Romanian culture, and issues they face on a day to day basis.
This day is important not only because it celebrates Roma’s around the world, but it also brings light to the discrimination that Roma’s face as well as persecution because of their cultural differences.
Currently over 10 million Roma’s reside in Europe, as Europe’s largest minority group. Despite the hardships they have faced, today is a day to celebrate! If you are in the GTA you can visit the following venue to participate in Roma a Day Event.
