Local Network

Created with Sketch.

We understand Migration Hub Heidelberg first and foremost as a network. We aim to empower the visibility and sustainability of local initiatives working on migration, flight and anti-racism through connection, cooperation and building alliances. For that purpose we’re using our website as a platform to present our local network.

BPoC and Migrant Initiatives

Initiatives by BPoC and migrants are the central agents in our network. They are community organisations, cultural associations, educational and dialogue projects. BPoCs and migrants set the tone for Heidelberg’s civil society in various forms of community and collectives.
