New York, NY - June 26, 2023 - In an extraordinary move, the World Roma Federation revealed the draft of a monumental Declaration of Roma Rights today. This landmark document emphasizes the crucial rights of the Roma people to healthcare, housing, social services, education, and employment as fundamental to their well-being and dignity as human beings.

The declaration masterfully references several international laws and treaties that safeguard these rights for the Roma community. Among them are the renowned Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), European Union (EU) Charter of Fundamental Rights, International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), and the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM). These legal frameworks form a steadfast foundation for advocating equal treatment and opportunities for the Roma people on a global scale.

The World Roma Federation passionately implores governments and institutions worldwide to uphold their responsibilities under these laws and treaties. They aim to guarantee equal access to healthcare, housing, social services, education, and employment without discrimination or exclusion. By staunchly defending these indispensable human rights, the Roma community is determined to carve a path towards equality and justice for everyone.

This significant initiative taken by the World Roma Federation showcases their unwavering commitment to fighting for their rights within communities across continents. The declaration sheds light on the disparities faced by this frequently marginalized community and serves as a powerful call-to-action for change.
