Thank you so much for standing up for equality and diversity and stopping injustice by supporting our work.
Thanks to you, more people like Fatima* will have somewhere to turn when faced with racist attacks.
Last year, Fatima and her young daughter were taking a Dublin bus when they were targeted with anti-Islamic insults by a loud, abusive man. No one on the bus intervened.
When they arrived at their stop and got off, the abuser got off too and followed them all the way to their neighbourhood, taunting and yelling the whole way. For days after Fatima was scared to leave her house or let her young daughter play outside. She came to us looking for support and we were able to help her to put together a report at her local Garda Station so an investigation could be started.
Fatima’s bravery in coming forward also allowed us to raise the issue of racism in Ireland and push for stronger laws around hate crimes and discrimination to make sure the perpetrators of such acts are fully prosecuted. Fatima’s case is ongoing, but thanks to you, she’s not alone in her fight.
