You may have seen that Kick It Out, The FA, The Premier League and multiple bodies in football are leading a social media blackout this weekend in response to the ongoing and sustained discriminatory abuse received online by players and many others connected to football. This is a call for social media firms to help #StopOnlineAbuse.
We believe there is no place in any sport, either online or offline, for discriminatory abuse of ethnically diverse athletes.
As an Active Partnership we are fully supporting this protest, and along with the Active Partnership Network will be observing the blackout across all our social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) from 15:00 on Friday 30th April (tomorrow) to 23:59 on Monday 3rd May.
