Call for graphic designer
ERGO Network is looking for a graphic designer to finalize the design of the synthesis report created in the project Peer education to counter antigypsyist online hate speech funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020) with co-funding fromGoogle.Org Impact Challenge on Safety in the framework of ERGO Network’s project Peer education to counter antigypsyist online hate speech.
ERGO Network (www.ergonetwork.org) brings together over 30 members from across Europe and supports organisations with a common perspective on Roma grassroots empowerment and equal citizenship to challenge stereotypes and combat stigmatization. We mobilize and connect organisations and individuals that share and express our values – active citizenship, shared responsibility, and passion – to strengthen and empower Roma civil society involvement in decision-making at local, national, and European levels and to address existing shortcomings of policies targeted at Roma.
Peer education to counter antigypsyist online hate speech
With approximately 12 million people living in Europe for centuries, the Roma are the continent’s biggest ethnic minority. At the same time, they are its most disliked and discriminated minority, with every third person not wanting to have a Roma neighbour and 80% of Roma living at the risk of poverty.
Antigypsyism – a specific form of racism against people who are perceived as ‘Gypsies’ in the public imagination, is at the core of the social exclusion and discrimination of Roma.
PECAO will counter antigypsyist hate speech online by working with young people, using a combination of peer education and monitoring in order to obtain two-fold results: the peer education methodology will achieve a direct change in attitudes and actions of a high number of young people, and the monitoring will contribute to better understanding and a more systemic change of policies through advocacy based on the results.
- To raise awareness of young people in ten countries of the adverse impact of hate speech on Roma and of the importance to report antigypsyist online hate speech.
- To train young Roma as peer educators and to empower them to monitor and report hate speech online
- To advocate for anti-discrimination policies that take into account the online sphere as well as antigypsyism as a bias motivation.
- To raise awareness of other stakeholders of antigypsyist hate speech in online media
