Facing Facts!, CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe
Facing Facts! is a concerted effort of NGOs aiming to unmask the reality of hate crimes in Europe and keep governments accountable to their international commitments. 50 trainers have been trained from Jewish, Muslim, Roma, LGBT, anti-racist, human rights and disability awareness organisations from across Europe. Facing Facts! advocates for greater cooperation between governments, law enforcement and NGOs. It has been recognised as a best practice by several intergovernmental organisations. Currently, Facing Facts! is being converted into a Massive Open Online Course including a module dealing specifically with hate speech.
