As we are approaching the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination this Saturday, to mark that important day INAR Irish Network Against Racism have launched today our newest data report on racism in Ireland today. You can download the 2019 Reports of Racism in Ireland and read the media release here.

We would like to encourage you to participate in our annual #TogetherAgainstRacism social media action to stand together for equality, social inclusion and diversity. Simply post a photo/selfie of you, with your family, friends, teammates or even pets if working from home, with #TogetherAgainstRacism hashtag. Use your conferencing tool team screenshot, collage or individual photos as all support is welcome. Post it on social media between today and 21st March for us to re-share.
