Publications by CSOs and university bodies show that prejudice and hate speech is steadily increasing in Polish society. People who belong to minorities experience physical and verbal abuse in schools and in cyberspace. At the same time, schools are abandoning discrimination prevention awareness programs due to statements made by people in government and the persuasive arguments of some organizations.
The project includes a series of workshops, webinars, and online courses for people interested in conducting classes on preventing discrimination, and Loesje method workshops for young people. The measures are intended for people all over Poland, but in the online courses people from the smaller towns will be given priority. There will also be an awareness campaign to improve the image of measures to raise awareness of discrimination prevention and the people conducting it, and educational content will be posted on social media.
The project will enable more than 700 people to develop discrimination prevention awareness-raising skills, and will also improve the image of discrimination prevention awareness-raising.
