Our project, the Anti-Racism and Civic Courage Training (ACCT), employs a comprehensive and intersectional methodology, along with targeted measures, to combat and prevent intolerance, racism, xenophobia, and discrimination.
Anti-Racism and Civic Courage Training: A CERV EQUAL PROJECT
To promote equality and to fight against racism, xenophobia and discrimination, the project “Anti-Racism and Civic Courage Training” (ACCT) uses comprehensive and intersectional approach and specific actions to prevent and fight against intolerance, racism, xenophobia, and discrimination. ACCT brings together civil society organisations, activists and community leaders in training activities that establish contact between groups affected to a different degree to alleviate and prevent racism and xenophobia in rural communities.
During ACCT, community leaders will be trained on how to establish local documentation centres of discriminatory incidents using the innovative approach of Berlin’s Register. ACCT also aims to contribute to the statistical recording of discriminatory attacks and racist violence. To do this, we bring together experts from different countries. We exchange methodologies and develop them together with organisations on the ground so that they can apply them.
Through a poster competition, we will spread the activities and message of ACCT widely across Europe. The winning posters will be used online and offline, reaching millions of individuals through public transport advertising, social media, and will be readily available for download.
