Rosa Parks

Our name Parks is a tribute to Rosa Louise Parks

The afro-american lady who on 1st December 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, refused to give up her seat to a white passenger as ordered to do so by the driver of the bus she was travelling on.

Through her gesture the American civil rights movement was born, soon to be headed by her fellow citizen, Martin Luther King.

A small daily gesture

History has changed its course, thanks to a small gesture affirming dignity during a daily routine, a bus journey.

Journeying to work is another daily occurrence. That’s why we decided to call our association after this small but resolute lady, so decisive for the course of history.

Rights must be the same for all, even in the workplace. Whatever the ideologies or the prejudices, a country, when it grows, must grow together.
