For a diverse society, it is crucial that all citizens advocate a friendly and open way of dealing with each other and being there for one another. This works particularly well by becoming a volunteer. The following chapter will give a brief overview of the many ways in which you can volunteer in Lörrach.

Political involvement

International Commission in Lörrach
The International Commission is a group from elected city officials, representatives from various charities and elected citizens with migration backgrounds. This commission advices the political boards. The commission also helps politicians with suggestions, proposals and opinions that clarify the wants of the individual populations of immigrants within Lörrach.

The International Commission is an information point for the following subjects:
  • Office for advice for all problems related to immigration and integration in Lörrach
  • Advocates for all issues concerning any problems relating to integration in
    Lörrach. This includes the city’s responsibilities to its new citizen’s legal rights
    and the laws that are in effect.
  • Information for the new citizens regarding the process of local decision making.
  • Procedures for the integration of immigrants
  • Facilitation and encouragement of social, cultural and educational activities
When you are interested in the International Commission, you can register for the next vote. Voters must be over 18 years old, have a migration background, and can speak and understand German.
