I am a politician, feminist, crossword puzzle lover and a real “Ruhrpott” child. My political commitment stems from my passion: since 2014, I have been a Member of the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament. I campaign for the rights of LGBTI people and against the exploitation of European workers. I am committed to women’s rights and to strengthening Europe’s regions.
Achievements we took for granted are subject to right-wing attacks these days. Opponents of democracy are trying to turn back time. Using my political work, I stand firmly against the backlash and I’ll keep fighting for a progressive and fair Europe!
Real emancipatory policies all over Europe are long overdue. As a Member of the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality, Terry works, among other things, towards more women on boards in politics and the economy as well as gender equality in the fields of the labour market and health services.go to topic
Terry fights for progressive anti-discrimination policies so that no one in Europe can be discriminated because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Everyone has to be able to be and love whoever they want to.go to topic
Europe is not a finalised project that we should adore from the outside. Europe is not a collection of endless contracts and commemoration days. We are Europe. We have to help forming this Europe with curiosity, passion and expertise.go to topic
Progressive social policies strengthen the social solidarity in Europe. Consequently, as a member of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs, Terry fights for good labour conditions and strong rights for employees, health and security at the workplace as well as social protection and social security for everyone in Europe.go to topic
The regional policy of the European Union is an enormous investment machine: One third of the total budget of the EU flows into these funds. This money has to be used in a reasonable, sustainable and social way – in the Ruhr Area, in North Rhine-Westphalia and all over Europe!go to topic

Together, we are stronger than Brexit
For friends across our diverse and beautiful continent who value European cooperation, today is a sad day. In the UK we have seen the triumph of a narrow nationalism, the very same sort of nationalism that led to centuries of war. The European Union was built on the ashes of the last war and in the clear understanding that we must make and remake peace in every generation. We restate our determination to keep the flame of peace alive and to challenge nationalism and prejudice in our continent and across the world.
