England Lacrosse Joins Bank Holiday Weekend Social Media Boycott


England Lacrosse has made the decision to stand with our friends in football and other sporting communities across the country by boycotting social media from 3pm today (Friday 30 April) until 11:59pm on Monday (3 May).

Social media has considerable reach in society today, power to connect and inform and we understand that it is at the heart of a lot of what we do at England Lacrosse.

However, we believe the boycott will highlight the need for social media companies to do more to eradicate online hate, while also helping to highlight the importance of educating people in the fight against all forms of discrimination.

We understand that the social media boycott in isolation will not eradicate online hate, but it shows that the lacrosse community alongside many other sports is willing to take proactive steps in this continued fight.
