A Youth Work Strategy that Tackles Racism

A Youth Work Strategy that Tackles Racism

We want a National Intercultural Youth Strategy that addresses racism, identity, intercultural, equality and integration. This would be the equivalent to the LGBTQ Youth Strategy and the Traveller and Roma youth strategy.

Why is this important?

The current National Youth StrAtegy 'Brighter Futures -Better Outcomes' does not include any intercultural focus. This therefore neglects hundreds of youth in Ireland. Groups affected Intercultural youth groups, international students, migrant youth, children born from migrant parents, mixed ethnicity youth, ethnic minorities excluding Traveller &Roma communities.


Reasons for signing

  • To prevent discrimination against non-Irish individuals
  • Young people from non Irish backhrounds should be welcomed among us
  • I believe in equality for all
