Stop Funding Hate public talk - book your place

Posted by bv39 at Feb 19, 2020 08:33 AM |
As part of Refugee Week Breaking Barriers (2 - 6 March), the University will be hosting a public talk by Richard Wilson – writer, human rights activist and co-founder of Stop Funding Hate, who will outline some of the key successes and lessons of the campaign so far.

Stop Funding Hate works to challenge racism & bigotry by persuading companies to pull advertising from media that incite hatred against minority groups. The campaign is driven by an online movement of people from across UK society, who are committed to challenging all forms of hatred and discrimination by using their power as consumers. While there is still a long way to go, since Stop Funding Hate was launched, there has been a big drop in the number of anti-migrant front pages in the UK press.

Stop Funding Hate is now working to bring about longer-term change by sharing the lessons of the campaign, both in the UK and internationally, and by building support for “ethical advertising” as a mainstream business ethics issue.

The talk will be taking place on Tuesday 3 March, 1pm in the Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre 2.
