Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month Celebration 2017

Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month (GRTHM) started in 2001 in Brent and in 2008 it was celebrated across the country with backing from the government. GRTHM is an important opportunity for communities to celebrate their heritage and for everyone to learn about the history, achievements and cultures of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers.

Research has found that 9 out of 10 GTR children are bullied in school because of their ethnicity (Anglia Ruskin University, 2014). During GRTHM schools can access resources to teach pupils about GTR cultural history; this helps to break down stereotypes held by pupils as well as giving GTR pupils more confidence to be open about their identity.

This year Traveller Movement will be supporting schools to celebrate GRTHM 2017- we can provide resources and will be holding an exciting event in June. More details coming soon!

Please contact educationattravellermovementdotorgdotuk  (educationattravellermovementdotorgdotuk)   if you work in a school, library or community centre and would be interested in getting involved or if you would like support in approaching your local school to encourage them to celebrate GRTHM.
