Jennifer Schweppe and Amanda Haynes of the Hate and Hostility Research Group were delighted to accept the Silver Award in the “Best in Government and Not for Profit” category at the 2020 Digital Media Awards on Friday. Jennifer accepted the award along with colleagues at We The People on behalf of the HHRG and the Transgender Equality Network Ireland for their work on the Call It Out campaign. The Call It Out campaign was funded by the European Union, and part of a ten country project which sought to raise awareness of homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.
At the GALAs LGBT+ Awards on February 8th, the HHRG and the Call it Out were shortlisted for two awards: Best Event and Digital Changemaker. The HHRG was longlisted for a GALA LGBT+ Award for Best Ally.
