STAR stands for Stand Together Against Racism, and the more of us stand together, the more succesful we will be in mainstreaming anti-racist education in youth work around Europe. In the past 3 years we have worked on educational activities and approaches, tested them with over 6000 young people, and published tools like the manual CONSTELLATIONS and the Massive Online Open Course ¨Make it Visible¨, to support youth workers in runing anti-racist educational activities.

Signing this commitment letter is symbolic, but we believe that it still can be a powerful tool for action. We invite you to sign this commitment letter to officially make a statement as an organization or an individual for embracing and promoting the principles of anti-racism, cherish diversity and embrace inclusion in youth work in Europe. 

So, are you on board?

We invite all individuals and organizations to fill out the form of the commitment letter below. Then we will send you a package of materials including the manual CONSTELLATIONS, to help you learn and run your anti-racist activities with young people. Finally, we want to make your commitment visible, so we will communicate about it on our web, and through social media. Feel free to communicate your commitment through your own channels.
