This Europe-wide NGO-led campaign will run from the beginning of May until election days between 24th-
26th of May, before and during the European Parliamentary elections.
The objective of the campaign is to enhance digital empathy, tolerance and respect in debates and public
discourse. The campaign is raising awareness about the normalization of hate speech in public and political
discourse, which is preventing critical debates and block us from engaging with people many see as
‘others’. This should be a core part of the democratic process and elections.
The grassroots campaign aims to show that European citizens deserve better quality debates, better
arguments without spreading hate and/or relying on false news, misinformation or conspiracy theories.
Regardless of our different political colors, we know we deserve better than this, which is why we
are campaigning: to inspire more awareness and positive speech.
