Intercultural & Anti-Racism Week 19 - 25 March 07
Intercultural and Anti-Racism Week 2007
19-25 March is Intercultural & Anti-Racism Week in Ireland North and South. The week is built around and includes the United Nations designated International Day Against Racial Discrimination (March 21). This year Intercultural & Anti-Racism Week will also be part of 2007 European Year of Equal Opportunities for All and the week also coincides with the Bicentenary of the Abolition of Slavery on 25 March.
Who is coordinating the week?
The week is coordinated by the National Consultative Committee on Racism and Interculturalism (NCCRI) in partnership with the National Action Plan Against Racism and the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.
This year the theme of the week is ‘Working to Improve Services to Minority Ethnic Groups’ focusing on:
• Health • Education • Employment • Housing • Policing
During the week there will be a series of signature events that will focus on these areas and other policy issues.
