No Hate

The No Hate Project – Inclusive writing of articles about the Roma during the COVID-19 pandemic is carried out by Freedom House Romania, in partnership with Agenția de Dezvoltare Comunitară Împreună„, with the financial support of Active Citizens Fund Romania. The program is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants 2014-2021. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of journalists to the issue of human rights and minorities, with an emphasis on the Roma minority.

The project takes place between October 1 and December 31, 2020 and includes two webinars and a contest. The webinars will address the topic of the history of the Roma community in Romania, the socio-demographic characteristics of the Roma and inclusive writing practices regarding the Roma community. The contest is addressed to journalists from the written press, radio and TV in Romania, and consists of writing articles about the Roma community.

Following the competition, 10 journalists will be selected whose editorial projects will be remunerated with 200 euros each.

A study about the way Roma people have been covered in the media during the pandemic will be elaborated.
