• "We believe that integration can chiefly be achieved by education and consistently combatting prejudice.
• We want to support children with an immigration background by offering them language lessons.
• We want to motivate them and to support their education in various ways.
• We encourage mutual acceptance, seeking to create a community which is as unprejudiced as possible, in order to enrich our shared life in our town.
• We want to find ways to encourage mutual respect and understanding between locals and immigrants so that this becomes the norm.
• We want to provide citizens with an immigration background with access to reliable sources of information“.
