#StopRacism - Ireland's largest anti-racism 2015 campaign
The launch of Ireland’s largest anti-racism campaign was launched on 22 April 2015 and Bus Éireann is very proud to be supporting such a good imitative. The campaign was launched by the Immigrant Council of Ireland and the National Transport Authority and posters have been placed across all public transport links in Dublin and around our Travel Centre’s and onboard our bus services throughout Ireland. The campaign is aimed at encouraging the general public to stand up to racism and report any incidents they may observe.
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.”
Bus Éireann has clear policies on equality and diversity and welcomes the opportunity to work in partnership with other transport providers in the campaign to stop racism.
Our policies state our commitment to creating and maintaining a workplace and service provision where all are treated equally and where differences are welcomed and embraced. Bus Éireann will take whatever action is necessary to prevent inappropriate behaviour in the workplace.
