Anti-Rumours

antirumours logoThe anti-rumours campaign aims to dispel the widespread myths and misconceptions around the topic of immigration and migrant integration, by providing evidence-based answers and utilising social networks to spread the message of the campaign far and wide.

As part of the campaign, Doras Luimní provided free training to a team of anti-rumours advocates who were given the necessary tools to carry out their own projects and workshops which challenge the most common myths. Since June 2014, over 1,000 people have participated in our workshops across Limerick and Ireland.
