If you knew your words were hurtful, would you say them again?

Posted by Tom Megginson | 16-10-2014 16:30 | Category: Discrimination

If you knew your words were homophobic, would you say them again? Learn how to be an LGBT positive parent.

Full disclosure: I wrote these ads as a personal volunteer project, in partnership with my sister-in-law, Bonnie Robinson, at Ottawa’s YOW! Productions. We had been looking for a pro-bono job to do together, and Bonnie had been involved with the organization. She shot these two PSAs on an absolute shoestring, with volunteer actors and most people’s time donated. I’m sharing them here because as parents we really need to stop enabling a culture of casual homophobia.

The first PSA is for parents of LGBT children who haven’t come out yet. The quotes are based on actual surveys that Etc. did with LGBT youth, about things they had heard that had hurt them and the underlying message of seemingly-innocent comments:

Native American group calls out FedEx for Redskins sponsorship.

Artist and filmmaker Steven Paul Judd stars in this short parody of a FedEx commercial, intended to shame a major corporate sponsor of the controversial Washington Redskins NFL team:

Not the most subtle of satire, its point is pretty clear: Why do so many Americans have a different standard for derogatory portrayals of Native Americans than they do for other minority groups?

Why a Brazilian football team played with an inverted jersey and no one noticed

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 6-06-2014 20:40 | Category: Discrimination, Sport

Brazilian football team Botafogo inverted the colors of its jersey in the battle against racism.

Due to the increasing racism, Brazilian football club Botafogo inverted the colors of its traditional jersey. It was striped black and white for over 100 years. And the club, together with Puma, announced that they would take the field with a special jersey. After great expectations came the surprise which no one noticed.

The take the field with an inverted shirt that was black and white also. And unfurled a banner reading:
“If you didn’t notice the invertered jersey, it’s because color makes no difference at all.”

A priest, a rabbi and an atheist walk into a bar for cultural diversity

May 21 is World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. And Danish agency Move. Copenhagen made a campaign for this day.
They use the opening line of well known jokes and give it a little twist.

The day was created to raise awareness worldwide about the importance of intercultural dialogue, diversity and inclusion.

The three posters are part of their new ongoing campaign ‘Messages Worth Sharing’. The campaign isn’t co-branded, it’s the message from the agency itself.
As Simon de Tusch-Lec from the agency commented: “By not doing so, we will achieve continuity, consistency and creative freedom throughout the campaign.”

Minorities unite with animated campaign ahead of EU elections

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 15-04-2014 13:20 | Category: Discrimination, Gender issues

#NoHateEP2014: Minorities unite with animated campaign ahead of EU elections.

This animated campaign explains the choice given to Emma, an EU voter, in the May elections. Emma faces an important choice between candidates who oppose her friends’ rights, or who care about both Emma and her community.
The campaign comes from ILGA-Europe (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans & Intersex Association) and The European Network Against Racism (ENAR).

Evelyne Paradis, ILGA-Europe: “This is the first time two organisations like ours unite at this level. We speak for over a thousand organisations who firmly believe that discriminating against one minority affects everyone negatively.”
“We’re telling voters from all walks of life that more equality and more justice are within reach, but to achieve that, they must vote in May.”

Many candidates for the European Parliament hold very strong views about diversity and LGBT rights. That is the reason for this campaign. That you make a conscious choice if you find equality important.

The campaign will be shared widely on social media in 12 languages in the run-up to the May elections. It contains a video and infographics.
The hashtag is #NoHateEP2014.

This new and funny campaign from Women’s Inc. in The Netherlands is about the wage gap. About the fact that women get € 300.000 less salary in their entire career. Men and women have the same rights in the flat country, but still not the same opportunities.

Women can reduce a large part of the difference in the choices they make According to Women’s Inc. In addition to the print campaign, the organization has therefore developed an online test. With recommendations how they could reduce the difference.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
