Únia rómskych materských centier (ÚRMC)
URMC is a network organisation associating active Roma women from 9 municipalities in the Banská Bystrica region in Slovakia. Their priority is to “emancipate the Roma woman”, which they try to achieve through activities focused on personal growth and strengthening of the position of their members in their own communities. The organisation focuses mainly on community organising and community building. Its members directly work mostly with women, but often also with whole families. They support them in overcoming of consequences of social exclusion, racism or sexism. The activists from URMC promote the values of gender equality in their communities and strive for better coexistence of all people irrespective of their ethnicity. URMC regularly organises community meetings, talks, workshops or cultural and sport events.
