7th annual Transport Against Racism campaign launches in Ireland
A partnership between the Immigrant Council of Ireland, the National Transport Authority and public transport operators have launched the seventh edition of their annual anti-racism campaign. This is the biggest anti-racism campaign in Ireland, running for two weeks each year and displaying over 2,000 posters across public transport vehicles and stations.
The campaign started in 2013 and grew to become a national campaign in 2015. Each year, the campaign conveys a message that ranges from encouraging reporting of racism to celebrating diversity and an inclusive public transport environment. The campaign is featured as a best practice on the Cities of Migration platform.
This year’s campaign is engaging the public by collecting selfies to create a live mosaic at the main train station in Dublin. Media interest in the campaign is high, as the issue of racism on public transport still persists as per the TV and print media reports.
