Warning! As of 20 September 2021, the EU lobby register has changed format. Temporarily, the register is no longer providing daily data updates of all lobby data which means that the figures on LobbyFacts cannot currently be kept up-to-date. If, for example, you see a company, trade association, or lobby consultancy with "no figure available" for EU lobby costs, open the data card, and click the link to the EU lobby register where you will find the updated registration including EU lobby costs declaration. Regretably, under the lobby register format, NGOs and think tanks are no longer required to provide a figure for EU lobby costs. We will update LobbyFacts with the new data as soon as possible.
WARNING: As this organisation lists one or more EP accredited lobbyists, it is highly improbable that its lobbying costs are lower than €10,000.
WARNING: The lobbying costs declared by this organisation are extraordinarily high and may therefore have been over-declared.

Goals / Remit
#DiasporaVote! is an initiative aiming at offering more representation and inclusion to racialised communities living in Europe. We encourage youths from the African diaspora and other racialised communities to get involved in the development of the EU policies by helping them understand how these policies shape their daily lives and by stimulating them to think of ways to improve their lives and that of others in Europe. Because our goal is for racialised communities to be more active in politics and vote, we support diaspora youths as they carry the voices of their local communities to the table of higher-level decision-makers.
#DiasporaVote! operates as a safe space for all members from racialized communities to speak up, share and find solutions to issues faced by their local communities. We offer them a place to be themselves and get support from the same like-minded people. We educate diasporas members on their rights, the European policies and the EU institutions. By doing so, we help them better understand the environment in which they evolve; We also want to give the diaspora more opportunities when it comes to their implication in activism and politics at the local and global level. Our main policy targets are civic engagement; education; anti-racism; human rights; environment; gender equality & employment; youth & culture. Currently we are working on the following EU specific legislation: EU Anti-racism Action Plan; the resolution on the role of culture, education, media, and sport in the fight against racism; the resolution on the future EU Action Plan on Textile; the EU Pay Transparency directive and the reform of the EU Generalised Scheme of Preferences (GSP+) regulation
