Commonly in Sweden, young people from these kinds of areas feel left out, have a lack of trust in governments and authorities and basically feel left out of society. We want to give these people a platform where they can speak about their individual experiences on hate speech, as can be for a young black male from Vivalla or Rinkeby. In Sweden, people of colour have fewer opportunities, which means that there is a lot of frustration in these kinds of communities.
We have a strong feeling that this project will be appreciated and might plant some ideas for some of the participants to continue to work with these kinds of questions. We also believe that this might encourage them to speak about what they believe in and what they want to change. Hopefully, this will be a good start for our youths to stand up for themself and be brave enough to speak about issues they are experiencing.
