Czech Republic: Discussion of adoption and foster care for Romani children tomorrow at Klinika
On Tuesday, 23 February, at 18:30 there will be a lecture and debate on the topic of foster family care for Romani children at the Klinika Autonomous Social Center (Jeseniova 60, Prague 3). This is the third such evening lecture in a series called "Getting a Good Start" (Mít dobrý start) and will be led by Martina Vančáková, a family counselor, foster parent, and psychologist who founded the "Our Romani Child" project at the Foster Care Center in Prague.
Klinika was the target of a neo-Nazi arson attack earlier this month at the end of a day of demonstrations for and against refugee reception in the capital. In response to complaints regarding police procedure during those events, the Czech Interior Minister is expected to release the results of his review of the police handling of the demonstrations today.
