Leiden belongs to everyone. Racism and discrimination have no place in our city. The municipality of Leiden organizes city talks with partners. These are dialogues with residents and interested parties about how residents of Leiden can feel at home, safe, and how we can ensure that everyone is treated respectfully and fairly.

The meeting is on Thursday, March 21, from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM during the International Day against Racism and Discrimination. You are welcome from 7PM onwards. Because the event is during Ramadan, we will provide snacks upon arrival.

Everyone is welcome and we treat each other with respect. All parts of the program are in Dutch and English.

You can register via the registration button below. You are welcome to bring others with you. If you do so, please indicate how many guests will come with you.
