Dignity

GTM understanding of Dignity

Dignity means an acknowledgement of Traveller identity, a feeling of pride in identity and who one is. It is about a strong sense of self-worth and about being treated with respect, fairness, and in an equal and non-judgmental manner.

GTM Strategic Objective - Dignity

Foster pride in – and understanding of – Traveller ethnic identity and will contribute to resilience and a sense of identity, roots, and place within the Traveller community.

When an individual is protesting society's refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him
Bayard Rustin
