The #Cut It Out campaign is a joint initiative between the Traveller Movement and Rene Cassin aimed at tackling hate speech and inflammatory rhetoric in politics against ethnic minority or religious groups.
Research has shown time and again that racist or derogatory language by politicians against minority groups can lead to a spike in hate crimes, while racist and irresponsible reporting in the media can lead to a backlash against all community members. This is unacceptable. We are working with Rene Cassin to challenge this and instead promote inclusive and value-driven language.
The Cut it Out campaign will launch in parliament on Wednesday the 16 of October. To register to attend, please click on the following link:
