Stop Shaming

After producing a report about shaming we are now, together with Gypsy and Traveller individuals, launching a #StopShaming social media campaign. 

70% of the Gypsies and Travellers who responded to our survey had experienced shaming or ‘scandalising’ from their own people. The high suicide rates in Gypsy and Traveller communities have been partially explained by this internal shaming.  

In the campaign, Gypsies and Travellers are appealing to their own communities ‘to stop shaming to save lives’. You can follow the campaign on our various social media platforms.
