The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) has launched on December 21st, 2016, together with several partners, a Europe-wide campaign Media Against Hate, to counter hate speech and discrimation in the media.

A website will gather the latest news related to ethical standards, freedom of expression, media diversity and resources for media professionals and civil society organisations (CSO) to fight against hate in the media.

A series of trainings and workshops will be organised for media professionals, representatives of CSOs and media regulators across Europe to exchange best practices and promote mutual learning and cooperation activities.

In addition, a video contest will be launched in January as part of the campaign to collect a diverse range of best practices with counter-narratives fighting stereotypes and discrimination in the media.

For more information and regular updates, please visit the website and use the hashtag #MediaAgainstHate on Twitter.
