The "Heroes" project is active in several cities across Germany

The "Heroes" project works to break down prejudices, stereotypes and patriarchal structures which are often the cause of oppression and violence 'in the name of honor'. Its members, trained "Heroes" who have migrant backgrounds themselves, hold workshops at schools with migrant peers who grew up with strong notions of traditional gender roles and protecting their family's honor. InfoMigrants met some "Heroes" in Berlin during one of their role-play based training sessions.
