Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE) is partnering with the European 
Federation of Journalists (EFJ), ARTICLE 19, Media Diversity Institute 
(MDI), Croatian Journalists’ Association (CJA), Cooperazione per lo 
Sviluppo dei Paesi Emergenti (COSPE) and Community Media Institute 
(COMMIT) in the Europe-wide campaign *Media Against Hate*, to counter 
hate speech and discrimination in the media, while maintaining respect 
for freedom of expression.

The media and journalists play a crucial role in influencing both 
policy-making and societal opinion on migration and refugees. As hate 
speech and stereotypes targeting migrants and refugees proliferate 
across Europe, balanced and fair media reporting is needed more than 
ever. Despite some good journalism practices and courageous journalists 
speaking out against hate, additional training and resources for media 
professionals and media organisations are needed in order for them to 
uphold ethical standards when reporting sensitive subjects.

A website www.mediaagainsthate.org 
<http://www.mediaagainsthate.org/> will gather the latest news related 
to ethical standards, freedom of expression, media diversity 
and resources for media professionals and civil society organisations 
(CSO) to fight against hate in the media. A series of trainings and 
workshops will be organised for media professionals, community media, 
representatives of CSOs and media regulators across Europe to exchange 
best practices and promote mutual learning and cooperation activities.

In addition, a video contest will be launched in January as part of the 
campaign to collect a diverse range of best practices with 
counter-narratives fighting stereotypes and discrimination in the media.

For more information and regular updates, please visit the website 
www.mediaagainsthate.org <http://www.mediaagainsthate.org/> and the 
hashtag #MediaAgainstHate on Twitter.

The project is financially supported by the European Commission (DG 
Justice and Consumers)
