Rossing Center Events and Updates

Today there are many forces working to make the place where we live less democratic, less inclusive and accepting, who believe in a world based on hatred, separation and ethnic, national and religious discrimination. We say no. No to the prevailing cycle of hatred and fear, no to prejudice and discrimination. Instead we say yes. Yes to mutual respect and shared society. Yes to creating the desire and the capacity to live together. Yes to a future of equality and inclusion. We need you because partnership is power!
