Facing Facts

Facing Facts is a series of an innovative programmes aiming to tackle the issue of hate crime and hate speech in Europe. We believe that the experience of Jewish communities in monitoring such behaviour can play a vital role in marshalling government and civic responses to combat antisemitism and all forms of hatred.

Through the Facing Facts Online e-learning platform, we are hosting high-quality and practice-oriented interactive courses on hate crime, hate speech and biasindicators. Since its inception in 2011, this initiative has been praised for its role in training on, and advocating for, hate crime monitoring systems that expose overlooked bias motivated acts.

The course is perfectly designed for working people. It provides a perfect combination of theory and practice with a variety of exercises, videos and case studies. The constant possibility to engage with the course tutor and peers is also a huge plus.

Facing Facts began as a partnership between four NGOs, with complementary experience in education, advocacy and hate crime monitoring to develop the first ‘train the trainer’ programme on monitoring hate crimes for CSOs. Moving forward, the programme has expanded its network of trainers and partner organisations, establishing a holistic, multi-stakeholder approach to hate crime monitoring. Facing Facts has since made its resources available to an unlimited public with its e-learning platform, Facing Facts Online With our new EU-funded project, Facing All the Facts, we look to reach a broader audience, specifically targeting law enforcement and government bodies to achieve institutional change in recording and responding to hate crimes.
