Statefree

Statefree was founded in 2021 with the mission of building a community of belonging and empowering stateless people. Statefree, initiated and led by Christiana Bukalo, a stateless woman born in Germany,  has become the first German non-profit dedicated to the topic of statelessness and now centres their work around three pillars: community, visibility and equal rights. In 2021 Statefree launched an online community platform community.statefree.world and since then has been hosting live and online community events in which stateless people and their allies can connect and share their experiences. Through community-engaged art, communication and media Statefree also osters visibility and awareness of the issue of statelessness in the public sphere. Narratives around statelessness are thereby reshaped, making sure the voices of those affected by statelessness are amplified. Since true empowerment of stateless people is only possible if they have access to rights, Statefree has expanded its work to the realm of political advocacy in the German political sphere.

Trixiewiz e.V.

Trixiewiz e.V. is a migrant and feminist organisation committed to creating sustainable forms of solidarity in a society shaped by migration. We see ourselves as a space for collaborative networking where we can develop new and effective forms of transnational political participation. To do so, we organise emancipatory projects in which migrants (particularly women*) are treated not simply as audience members, but, above all, as experts in their own right. Through political, cultural, and educational programmes for people who have experienced migration and/or flight, we develop participatory strategies to combat racism and discrimination and initiate processes of self-empowerment.
