Society for tolerance
Association against Anti-Semitism and Xenophobia

About the project

The project "Society for Tolerance" aims at publicizing and enhancing efficiency of activities performed since 1999 by Open Republic, Association against Anti-Semitism and Xenophobia, i.e. combating all forms of racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia and other attitudes offending human dignity. Monitoring of hate speech and hate acts will allow for description and analysis of particular cases and for taking civic and legal steps.

Everyone may report using a simple form available on the portal an incident connected with hate speech or hate act. Any supplementations or additional information added to a given description by portal administrators will be reported to the user who has sent a form to us. Thanks to the inter-active portal we intend to publicize this knowledge, promote good practices regarding counteracting intolerance and discrimination, teach how to do it and get citizens, NGOs and authorities of different levels involved in this activity. The project will contribute to activation of local communities in counteracting hate speech and acts, and, at the same time, it will make representatives of local governments and of the government more sensitive to these problems. Therefore, it will improve citizens' cooperation and involvement in public life, as well as civic control and operation of public institutions.

Our partner in this project is Klamra Foundation, whose local experience we will try to promote nationwide.

The project is performed under Citizens for Democracy program financed by EOG Funds.
