Built on the success of the past years, Facing Facts Forward! marked an other exciting phase of the Facing Facts! initiative and inlcluded, among the other things, a European Conference in Brussels on the subject of recording and reporting of hate crimes.

On April 20th, experts from international and Roma organisations met in Brussels to set the ground for the development of an online course on anti-Gypsyism bias indicators. The purpose is to improve recognition, recording  and responses to hate crime and hate speech against Roma people. 


Facing all the Facts! is co-ordinated by CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe.
