Roma Press Center – Roma Sajtóközpont

 

The media image of Roma is not only professional, ethical, or a
“question of taste” issue, but also question of Roma exclusion.

 

The Roma Press Center (RPC) is an independent news agency founded in 1995. The RPC is
the first news agency in Hungary, which informs the public through the mainstream media
about the news and events of the Roma, Europe’s and Hungary’s biggest minority group.
During their existence the RPC have published over 4,000 Roma-related news 80% of which
were printed in national daily papers, and 100% published on the Internet.

 

RPC shows objective pictures of the Roma society, and at the same time
all of the reports are published in the mainstream media.

 

Our activities: journalism & news service, production of short films, cooperating with the
largest hungarian mediums, cooperating with Roma and human rights NGO-s, civil rights
activity, training of young Roma journalists and activists
