City Rights United is an initiative by Amsterdam City Rights and subsidized by Citizens for Europe and Media & Democracy foundation.
The project has coordinators supported by the initiated organisation Here to Support. The rest of the work for the project is also carried out by the partners.
Amsterdam City Rights is part of the Here To Support foundation. The foundation wants to connect refugees in Limbo and different organisations in the field of education & Knowledge, art projects and lobbying. The projects are coordinated by practitioners together with refugees who wants to be heard and actively change their situation.
Amsterdam City Rights is one of the programs created over the last year by a coalition with among others Here To Support. They support the ‘Fearless City’ movement, cities where citizens (with or without papers) stand up for the rights of (undocumented) refugees and newcomers. In these cities new solidarity connections and projects arise that are liberated from the original ideas of the ‘Nation State’. In this movement it is secundairy relevance which nationality you hold and if you have ‘the right’ papers.
