Join us on the Journey – Anti-Racism 2019
Transport for Ireland and the Immigrant Council of Ireland have just launched a new anti-racism campaign on public transport featuring commuters from across Ireland who are standing in solidarity against all forms of racism. This year commuters are being asked to unite against racism and support the campaign by donating their selfies at Heuston Station.
Hundreds of selfies donated by passengers have been amalgamated to create a large montage representing diversity on the TFI public transport network.
Renowned collage artist Charis Tsevis developed the creative artwork for the campaign which will feature in an advertising campaign that is live across digital and social media platforms and from Monday on bus shelters, on-board TFI public transport services.
Commuters were able to involved in the campaign and show their solidarity by visiting Heuston Station and donating a selfie. All photos were used to create a mosaic in the station and you could also share on social media to take a stand and spread the message. The TFI booth was in Heuston from Tuesday 13th to Thursday 15th of August.
If you see a racist incident on public transport or elsewhere, the Immigrant Council of Ireland have information on what to do. So if you are not sure how to help, check out their allyship information here.
