ENAR Ireland is the Irish coordination of the European Network Against Racism, a network of anti-racism NGOs in Ireland which works collectively to highlight and address racism in Ireland. Core to ENAR Ireland's work is the promotion and monitoring of EU and global anti-racist initiatives and the operation of a racist incident reporting tool, www.iReport.ie.
iReport.ie is a reporting system for individuals, communities and organisations to document racist incidents in Ireland. The iReport.ie system is fully confidential and independent of state bodies. It is NGO based and uses a human rights monitoring model. The information gathered is used to inform a national conversation about racism and to provide evidence in support of our call for positive legal change against racism.
People experience, witness and hear about racism everyday. It damages lives, and yet there are many who deny its existence. Denial of racism encourages inaction. If you have experienced, witnessed or heard about a racist incident in Ireland there is something you can do about it.
By reporting the incident to www.iReport.ie you will help ENAR Ireland: 1. Understand how often racist incidents occur in Ireland. 2. Understand in greater detail who is experiencing racism in Ireland. 3. Understand more about different kinds of racism in Ireland. 4. In some cases, if you are willing, take action against the people responsible. 5. Devise effective local strategies for combating racism. 6. Inform our arguments for stronger anti-racist policies at a national level.
By reporting racism you are taking a strong stand against it. We need to break the silence.
