National Week of Action Against Hate Crime

hate-crimeFrom 19th to 25th March 2017, we are marking National Week of Action Against Hate Crime, along with our partners and members of ENAR Ireland, by calling on the Government to introduce hate crime legislation. Ireland is one of the only EU countries that does not legislate for hate crime.

On Thursday 23rd March the National Steering Group Against Hate Crime, of which Doras Luimní are members, will brief TDs and Senators in Leinster House on hate crime issues.
