Diversity Cultural Policy Hosting Participation Event

Moderation of the event to rename a street after Audre Lorde

In February 2019, the district assembly (BVV) decided to name a street after the poet and civil rights activist Audre Lorde.

During a digital event on 4 May 2021, participants were able to vote on the four proposals for renaming the streets. Audre Lorde's companions such as Ika Hügel-Marshall, Dagmar Schultz and Marion Kraft had their say and presented Audre Lorde's points of contact with the respective streets.

Prasanna Oommen, together with co-moderator Cassandra Ellerbe, led through the evening and the voting on behalf of the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district office.
