We are an organization dedicated to raising awareness about the history, culture and true lives of Romani people worldwide.
We confront racism and oppression wherever we encounter it.
We try to make connections with all the "isms" that make up western culture.

THE STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
This weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, the traveling museum made its official debut and it was a great success. We raised a couple of hundred dollars, but more importantly, we made some wonderful contacts and had FANTASTIC conversations. Many people said they really wanted to come back and mellowly explore the museum. We were even interviewed by the local radio station, Voice of Vashon.
The entire two days we only encountered one episode of racism and believe me, it was dealt with, and we received wonderful encouragement for the confrontation.
Tomorrow I will resume work. Today I have no voice (literally---I talked nonstop for two full days).
