Who is Mil Colores

Mil Colores means 1000 colours

Our Mission

Mil Colores is a foundation for and by women who, in all their diversity, want to meet and engage with each other on the basis of mutual respect and equality. Mil Colores wants to embody and represent an inclusive society. It offers a meeting place and a platform, in particular for LBT women from a diverse range of ethnic groups.

Our Vision

Mil Colores aims to contribute to an inclusive society, to equality, visibility, tolerance and societal acceptance for all women, and specifically LBT women from diverse ethnic origins. She is trying to accomplish these aspirations by:

  • Collaboration with organizations that share the mission and vision of Mil Colores;
  • She wants to underscore the wealth and value of differences within society by showing and propagating the diversity of her own target group.
  • She seeks to strife towards mutual integration, a process that should be based on mutual understanding and learning rather than one-sided adaptations of minorities to majorities;
  • Organization of activities in which women feel at home, safe and included;
  • Endorsement of (self) empowerment and connections between women in all their diversity despite and thanks to their differences

 

Every year Mil Colores organises activities and parties for women.
