"Embracing solidarity: We care, dare and share!“

All humans are equal, but not all have equal opportunities. aces aims for a society in which people care about each other, not only themselves or their kin, a place where people not only claim their rights but also see the responsibility they have for the wellbeing of all. It is in this spirit that they undertake initiatives for and together with those whose voices often aren't heard. We believe that solidarity is of upmost importance and one of the core values for social cohesion and a more sustainable world.
