11 Funded by EU’s Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme Project „Youth against Racism” (JLS/2008/FRAC/AG/ CE /00-57) 1. We DO NOT intend to undermine the work that these organizations or bodies are doing. Just the opposite, we support and admire it! 2. We DO NOT want them to change their sphere of work – we certainly don’t expect (and want) them to leave ecology, charity, youth governance, arts, sports, etc. and start doing Human Rights projects. GUIDELINES

12 Funded by EU’s Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme Project „Youth against Racism” (JLS/2008/FRAC/AG/ CE /00-57) 3. We DO NOT want to force these organizations to mainstream anti-racist measures in their work. We rely on our educational and communication methods to CONVINCE them that it is important and will then provide support for them, when they express the desire to participate. 4. We believe the best way for mainstreaming anti- racist measures in youth work is by the development and adoption of anti-racist youth organizational policies. GUIDELINES
