We, the ACCT project, stand against racism and prejudice, driven by our shared vision of creating inclusive and empowered communities. We believe that change starts at the grassroots level, and through our collective efforts, we will eradicate discrimination and foster a society built on acceptance and respect.
Awareness and Empowerment
We commit to raising awareness among local communities in rural areas, acknowledging that racism exists and acknowledging its harmful impact. We empower communities of diverse ethnic backgrounds, giving them a voice and the tools to address and challenge prejudice head-on. By co-creating and implementing trainings on anti-racism and civic courage, both in rural and urban communities, we foster a deep sense of understanding and solidarity.
ACCT brings together communities, municipalities, researchers, and policy makers, forging alliances that tackle racism and discrimination from all angles. By sharing good practices and innovative methodologies drawn from social identity theory and peacebuilding, we inspire change agents to become community leaders. These leaders are trained to provide anti-racism trainings in their own communities, spreading knowledge and fostering empathy. We embrace an intersectional perspective, recognizing that discrimination intersects with other forms of oppression, and work towards dismantling all barriers.
The Power of Training
The ACCT Training Curriculum, developed collaboratively and tested across diverse project contexts, is a potent tool for building understanding and tolerance. It equips individuals and communities with the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors necessary to combat racism. Through ACCT, we aim to transform communities all over Europe, nurturing a culture of inclusivity, empathy, and solidarity.
Documentation and Reporting
We believe in the power of documentation to combat racism effectively. ACCT empowers community leaders to document incidents of racism and discrimination, raising rights awareness and improving the reporting of hate crimes. By shining a light on these injustices, we expose the hidden realities and work towards justice and accountability.
ACCT combines the strength of face-to-face and online trainings, along with an awareness campaign, to create a comprehensive impact. We bridge distances, ensuring that our message reaches far and wide. Our high-quality partnership forms a transnational network, weaving together individuals, organizations, and policymakers. Together, we strive to make lasting change on a European scale.
We invite you to join us on this transformative journey. Stand with us against racism and prejudice. Be an advocate for change in your community. Embrace the values of acceptance, respect, and solidarity.
