A Schöneberg Citizens' Initiative
KIEZ CARE is a joint initiative of scene activists from Motzstraßen-Kiez.
We live and work in this neighborhood, are part of the scene ourselves, are independent, data protection oriented and well connected.
Purpose: Unfortunately, our colorful neighborhood is often targeted by well-organized criminals or becomes a scene for harassment. However, local politicians, authorities and the police can only react accordingly when sufficient facts and figures about these incidents are available. Incidents are often not reported to the police and are therefore not included in important statistics.
But we don't want to badmouth the great neighborhood, we just want to help solve a very special problem.
Our SAFEPLACE.BERLIN website simplifies and organises the recording of relevant incidents. Now it is up to you to use the tool.
KiezCare e.V. is a small non-profit organization that relies on donations from people like you.
We remember Matthew Shepard, who was brutally murdered in October 2018 exactly 20 years ago in Colrado USA at the age of 21. This terrible incident marks the beginning of gay "Hate Crime" legislation as a consequence.
