Diversity – Never enough!

European Action Week Against Racism 2018 is coming! Tell us about your Action Week activities!

Dear colleagues,

We are writing to remind you that the European Action Week Against Racism 2018 will take place from 17-25 March under the slogan “Diversity – never enough!”. Every year, UNITED coordinates this week-long Europe-wide campaign around 21 March to protest against all forms of racism and discrimination and to celebrate the diversity that enriches European societies.
We strongly value our diverse and eclectic network of people and activists around Europe. Now we call on everyone to celebrate the cultural diversity of Europe – while racist and right-wing forces feed on our differences and want societies to be divided, we focus on what we have in common rather than what separates us. As the European antiracist movement, we will prove that diversity is beautiful and valuable, that there can be never enough of diversity!

You can join the campaign by organising activities, involving your city government, following the Facebook page and share its content, by supporting others, and spreading the message. Join NGOs, civil society groups, grassroots associations, schools, universities and city governments all over Europe to prove that unity beats division, and that we stand UNITED against racism in all forms!

This year UNITED has five suggested activities that we encourage civil society organisations to organise to mark the action week:
