Dear friends of BUG, dear supporters of the work for equal treatment,

The Bureau for the Implementation of Equal Treatment (BUG e.V.) was founded nine years ago. During this time we have been successfully supporting lawsuits against discrimination. With our support it has been clarified, for instance, that adolescents who have been subjected to ethnic discrimination in clubs can successfully defend themselves against these systematic discriminatory incidents. Meanwhile, some federal states have amended their Licensing Acts to sanction such incidents ex officio. We have also been very active in terms of addressing and tackling racial profiling in the last few years, even though we were still unable to put this discriminatory practice of the federal police to an definitive end.

Details on planned projects are presented in the Strategic Plan and the Work Programme 2017, which can be found here.

What we could not achieve - despite the numerous applications sent to state and private sponsors - is sufficient funding. This means that there are still no long-term financial resources at BUG’s disposal.

From our experience we can carry out our work with about 10.000 € per year and thus continue to offer support for discrimination claims.

We are now contacting you to kindly ask you for your support. Every donation is appreciated and will help us to continue our work.

With your contribution, we would continue to support several racial profiling lawsuits and cases of religious discrimination. In addition, we want to ensure that independent complaints bodies for police authorities will be established and that issues of equal rights will be included in the coalition agreement of the new federal government. Unfortunately, these issues do not seem to fall into the priorities of Germany’s funding field.

If you find the work of BUG worthy to support, we would be very grateful for your donation, which can be transferred to BUG’s bank account:
