7-25 March – European Action Week Against Racism 2018

Thank you for reading Keep The Faith! If you enjoy our content, tell us by leaving a review here

Every year, UNITED coordinates a weeklong Europe-wide campaign around 21 March to protest against all forms of racism and discrimination, and celebrate the diversity that enriches European societies. The European Action Week Against Racism 2018 will take place from 17-25 March under the slogan “Diversity – never enough!”

UNITED strongly values its diverse and eclectic network of people and activists around Europe. Now we call on everyone to celebrate the cultural diversity of Europe – while racist and right-wing forces feed on our differences and want societies to be divided, we focus on what we have in common rather than what separates us. As the European antiracist movement, we will prove that diversity is beautiful and valuable, that there can be never enough of diversity!

There are several ways to join the campaign: organise activities, involve your city government, follow the Facebook page and share its content, support others, and spread the message. Join NGOs, civil society groups, grassroots associations, schools, universities and city governments all over Europe to prove that unity beats division, and that we stand UNITED against racism in all forms.

This year we have five suggested activities that we encourage civil society organisations to organise to mark the action week:

Movie night (you’ll find a list of movie ideas on the website!)

Diversity Party (you’ll find a song list on the website and a United playlist on Spotify!)

Walkathon/Bikeathon/Marathon

Antiracist Picnic

Human Library

Of course, you are also welcome to organise any other kinds of activities as part of the campaign, for inspiration, you can have a look at the list of best practice examples on the Week Against Racism website.

Don’t hide it, provide it!

UNITED can help you provide visibility for your events through an interactive map showcasing all activities of the Action Week Against Racism, and by sharing your events on its social media channels.

Don’t forget: Even small acts can change the world!
