#NoBystanders

Join the movement. Take a stand.

I will never be a bystander to hateful language and abuse. If I hear it, I will call it out and report it, and if I can, I will stop it. By adding my name I promise to stand up for fairness, kindness and never be a bystander.

Hate speech against LGBT adults is also still a big issue.

In November 2015, one in five people admitted to making offensive remarks about LGBT people in the last year. In one month alone, 30 per cent of people heard offensive remarks about LGBT people but 63 per cent didn’t do anything about it.

 

Help us challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, hate and abuse

Where you see homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, you're likely to see other forms of social exclusion, discrimination and prejudice, whether that’s because of faith, gender, ethnicity, disability, age, nationality or anything else that makes us different.

 

#NoBystanders is our campaign to stand up and empower others

Let’s empower others to challenge all forms of hateful language and abuse when they can. We can only succeed if we all play a part – join us today.
