Hope you are safe and well.
In light of the recent death of George Floyd that sparked thousands of Black Lives Matter protests and important discussions about racism, as a community organisation who works closely with migrants and asylum seekers we are hosting an anti-racism event at a local level.
Cultúr is organising a Virtual Anti-Racism Campaign. We are asking for a social media show of solidarity Against Racism by individuals, local organisations and businesses.
What we are asking you to do is:
- Send us a picture/ sign with the following hashtags #IStandWCultúrNavanAgainstRacism, #DontBeABystander. You can either send us the standalone sign with your logo, or a picture of a staff member holding the sign. We know that some people might be camera shy!
- We will be launching the campaign on 22 June 2020 and sharing the images we receive on Facebook – Cultúr Migrants Centre , Twitter – @CulturIreland and Instagram – Cultur Ireland and our website from the day. Please share the image on your own social media page using the aforementioned hashtags along with whatever message of solidarity you would like to promote.
- Please see the attached sample of hashtags you can adjust to suit or write out your own. IStandWCulturNavanAgainstRacism
- We will also be hosting an online AntiRacism Event “Hear Our Voices, Racism is Our Experience” on Friday 26th June 2020 @ 3pm. If you would like to register follow this link https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/hear-our-voices-racism-is-our-experience-anti-racism-event-tickets-109970729412
