“All of us need to call out and openly condemn all messages – especially political messages or discourses – which disseminate ideas based on racial superiority or hatred, or which incite racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance”

-Michelle Bachelet,
United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights

#FightRacism aims to foster a global culture of tolerance, equality and anti-discrimination. Every day, each and every one of us can stand up against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes.

Below are the goals of each member of this movement:

Tackle hate speech, from its root causes to its impact on societies

Create awareness of racial discrimination in all its forms, from the “casual” to the extreme, as well as institutional or organizational racism (beyond the interpersonal)

Create empathy about how it affects individuals and the broader community, thereby helping to change attitudes and behaviors

Empower communities and individuals, by equipping them with tools to identify, prevent and reduce discrimination; and to seek redress when it occurs
