International Roma Day – Monday, April 8

Monday, April 8 is International Roma Day, and several events will be held in observance in places around the world… including Texas (see the article linked below)!

International Roma Day has been observed for many years, but this year it’s gaining perhaps more attention than usual.  Individual violence and slander against Romani is ongoing.  Governments do little to stop these attacks… some governments are joining in the discrimination through targeted laws and simple inaction.

Would you join us in prayer for the Roma people across the world??  Please remember that our team’s week of prayer for the Gypsy people begins on Sunday.

Please see the links to two articles below regarding this year’s observance of International Roma Day:
