Forms of hate against migrants as well as their supporters has increasingly manifested itself in segments of society and there is a worrisome trend of growing acceptance. While some PICUM’s network partners have started to develop strategies to tackle hate speech and attacks, there is a clear need to develop strategies and narratives on how to address hate against migrants and their supporters.
We would like to invite you to join the short webinar: Anti-Migrant Hate Speech on 29 October from 12-12:45 (Brussels time).
The webinar is organised by the Facing Facts initiative (see also: https://www.facingfacts.eu/). PICUM’s Communication Officer, Elisabeth Schmidt-Hieber, will give a brief input during the webinar alongside guest speaker Sarah Chander, Advocacy Officer at the European Network against Racism (ENAR).
We will have the opportunity to discuss the impact of hate speech as well as the role of institutions in combating it. The webinar aims to be interactive and also address your questions that might be submitted via the chat function throughout the conversation as well as your ideas. We want to engage in a dialogue that will be continued beyond this webinar.
