Anti-Racism Network Basel - Akeem Salaam - May 2022

On the show with us was Akeem Salaam, a key person at the Netzwerk Anti-Rassismus Basel (Anti-Racism Network Basel). Akeem and his team of 10 people work to provide assistance to those affected by racism. The Network can provide legal assistance, counseling and advocacy; education and training; information; and online resources in 5 languages, with different cultural backgrounds. Starting May 3, 2022, the organization has kicked off the "Action Days Against Racism", featuring discussion events, trainings and support groups that will take place throughout 2022. Most importantly, Akeem encouraged those that have experienced racism to report it - Swiss statistics woefully underreport individuals' experiences, and therefore prevent the necessary resources from being allocated.
