Campaigning against Hate – virtual panel

Wednesday 27 May from 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm BST

Hear from influential and inspiring leaders in the campaign against hate, and how you can take part in combatting the rise in hate crime.

René Cassin is engaging community leaders, prominent individuals, youth movements and organisations to recognise that we must all work together to challenge and eradicate all forms of hate crime. But to do this, we need your help! We are calling for all human rights defenders to stand with us, together, against all forms of hate.

We will be joined by influential and inspiring leaders in the fight against hate speech and hate crime, to discuss the current climate, share personal experiences and ways they’re combatting the rise of hate crime.

Join us (on Zoom) to hear from our panel, find out about how you can take part in the #CutItOut campaign, and stand together against hate.
