“It does not matter what you know
if you cannot communicate with your people”.
Let's work together!
My association (ACSA) manages the activities of four community centers in a city called Aulnay-sous-Bois situated in the outskirts of Paris. ACSA is a community center organization composed of five public locations opened to the whole community. For over 30 years, community members have been commonly working on group activities, social support, public information and most importantly raising awareness and educating the community on issues of discrimination. Our programs target difficult urban and deprived areas of Aulnay-sous-Bois with the aim of promoting the community centers’ values and bolstering people’s abilities to affect change within their communities. In addition, our organization focuses on helping families and individuals achieve their wellness, education and cultural goals.
I strongly believe that we fundamentally have more things in common than we have differences, and that it is important to cross race, gender, ethnicity, class and geographical borders. All forms of illegal discrimination must indeed be fought. The inhabitants of our disadvantaged neighborhoods are exposed to discrimination based on their origins in employment, housing, education, religious practices etc.
My faith in the dignity of each individual leads me in my social commitments. That is why the anti-discrimination program I lead addresses the topic of citizenship and the fundamental values of the community centers which includes: respect for diversity, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, freedom and human rights, and a focus on seeking solutions to empower vulnerable people.
