#TakeAStand calls for fans to back anti-discrimination action

The FSA is supporting Kick It Out’s latest campaign, Take A Stand, which is calling for action in the fight against discrimination in football.

Despite the progress made in recent years more needs to be done to tackle discriminatory abuse in the stands and online. Kick It Out say Take A Stand is both a challenge and an invitation for individuals and organisations to publicly commit to their own pledge.

Kick It Out chair Sanjay Bhandari said: “Our Take A Stand campaign aims to tackle discrimination, but also create a culture where everyone belongs and individuals take personal responsibility for being part of the change.

“We can all do something to take a stand against hate and promote a more inclusive society.

“We know that social media can be a battleground of hate, which is why we’re working closely with Facebook and Twitter to improve that through looking at better regulation and enforcement, as well as updated and new reporting methods.”

For those who would like to make a pledge, either individually or as an organisation, or want more information on how to do this, please contact Kick It Out via [email protected].
