Salary: £31,532 pro rata (3 days per week) – one year fixed term contract (with the aim to extend dependent on funding)
Do you have a passion for challenging hate, discrimination, and prejudice in the UK media/press? Are you keen to empower people from across society to come together and take action? Can you help strengthen our campaign with insights about the challenges faced by communities affected by media discrimination and racism? Are you driven to unite communities facing negative media attention?
Stop Funding Hate is looking for an outstanding Community Organiser to help build the fightback against racism, xenophobia, transphobia, misogyny, anti-Traveller hate, Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination in the UK media.
If you have brilliant written communication skills and a strong track record in using digital platforms to develop online communities we’d love to hear from you.
We especially welcome applications from people affected by identity-based discrimination within the media and wider society, who can bring insights to this role grounded in lived experience.
Stop Funding Hate is a people-powered, community-driven human rights campaign, working to challenge media hate by engaging with advertisers. Since we launched in 2016, we’ve seen a marked reduction in anti-migrant front pages within the UK press.
We’re now working to build longer-term systemic change to make hate unprofitable through:
- Online campaigning, mobilising consumer power to continue challenging toxic media by engaging with advertisers
- Building a strong and vibrant wider ethical advertising movement through knowledge sharing, capacity building and amplifying voices
- Direct engagement with advertising industry allies, charities and community partners to establish ethical advertising as a mainstream business ethics issue
