"Show your face - against racism": Kick-off event on January 13, 2024

Together with partners, we affirm solidarity with those affected by racism and would like to draw attention to the kick-off event of a campaign for respectful interaction on January 13, 2024.

Racist attacks on international fellow students, academics and colleagues in Greifswald are on the rise. Against this backdrop, a broad alliance of Greifswald institutions and facilities has decided to launch a large-scale campaign to promote democratic and respectful interaction with one another. Together with its partners, the Helmholtz Institute for One Health (HIOH) - a site of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research - would therefore like to reaffirm its solidarity with those affected in order to counteract this extremely worrying and sad development.

The kick-off event will take place on January 13, 2024 as part of a star march. Further details will be announced soon. We are already inviting all Greifswald residents to send a clear and visible signal against racism.
