Everton Adopts International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Definition

Everton Football Club is proud to join the government, local authorities, the police, and other UK football clubs in adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.
A declaration to use the definition has been signed by more than 35 countries and has been used by the UK police forces and Crown Prosecution Service.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition sets clear guidelines, gives clarity and acts as a reference point for the Club, employees, stewards and fans on what constitutes as antisemitism.
The adoption will be used by Everton, as well as the Club’s award-winning charity, Everton in Community and Everton Free School.
Kim Healey, People Director at Everton Football Club, said: “We are proud to formally adopt the IHRA definition of antisemitism. Although we have been working in accordance with these guidelines for a number of years the formalisation of the IHRA classification means it will be adopted within our ‘All Together Now’ equality and diversity policy.
“We are a football family for all, and we understand the power of football to unite people. Our All Together Now campaign, which we launched in 2018, was set up to celebrate diversity and to increase awareness of everything we do to promote equality and inclusion. We want everyone who comes into contact with our Club to feel welcomed and included in everything we do.”  
Everton’s All Together Now branding and the tagline 'a football family for everyone' is used across the Club’s LED perimeter boards, the jumbotron screens and in concourses at Goodison Park on matchdays, while a number of initiatives and schemes to encourage inclusion and celebrate equality and diversity have been developed and introduced across the Club, the fanbase and local community.
The Club’s life-changing and life-saving charity Everton in the Community also has equality and diversity at its heart, aiming to create social cohesion and promote inclusion through tackling serious social issues. With more than 40 programmes in place for people of all ages, the award-winning charity has engaged with more than 145,816 individuals in the last year and supported more nearly 20,000 people through its outreach support programme during the coronavirus pandemic.
