April 22nd marked the launch of Ireland’s largest anti-racism campaign which Dublin Bus is proud to be a part of. The awareness campaign, launched by the Immigrant Council of Ireland and the National Transport Authority, will see posters placed across all public transport links in Dublin and across the wider country with the aim of encouraging the general public to stand up to racism and report any incidents they may witness.The campaign aims to combat racist and discriminatory behaviour on public transport and beyond by encouraging anyone affected by such to speak out. Speaking at the launch of the campaign Brian Killoran, Chief Executive of the Immigrant Council said; “This is an unprecedented national awareness campaign to get the message out that there is no acceptable level of racism. Through the use of posters on buses, trains and trams as well as at the busiest stations in the country we will be telling people who witness or experience racism to come forward and report it.”
Dublin Bus has a strong policy on equality and diversity and takes proactive steps to prevent racism. We welcome the opportunity to work in partnership with other transport providers in the campaign to stop racism.
