We Are Germany

We Are Germany

#AuchichbinDeuthscland--I, too, am Germany--is the battle cry of a campaign organized by the Deutschlandstiftung Integration to show people just how diverse Germany is. The face of modern Germany might not be the one you are expecting. And that’s a good thing.

“Equal opportunities for education, work, and social participation are the basis for successful integration. With our activities we want to inform people about integration, break down prejudice, and help active individuals network,” explains the Deutschlandstiftung Integration website.

The group runs a mentor program as well as informational campaigns. The latest involves a video series that depicts the prejudices many Germans face for looking “different” or having a name considered “unusual.” Watch one of their videos below or take a look at their photo campaigns on Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram.
