#GE16 Canvassers Welcome!

Wanted

In 2015, a series of discussions was organised by All Together in Dignity in different areas across Dublin in partnership with community groups.

The aim of these dialogues was to allow citizens, especially those in positions of hardship, to reflect on what ‘human rights’ meant for them. This project was financially supported by a small grant from IMPACT’s Joe Lucey Fund.

Based on the messages of citizens of Dublin’s Northside, ATD prepared a #GE15 leaflet you can download, print and pin at your front door as a “questions list” for canvassers!

WANTED DEADicated and ALIVE

With all the participants to the workshops, we pledge to fight for our rights. Human rights must be real and available to everyone. Not only must our rights be recognised, but there must be clear, simple and effective methods for us to access these rights.

We welcome the constitutional convention’s recommendation to strengthen the protection of economic, social and cultural rights in Bunreacht na hÉireann. We call on all candidates to actively support all initiatives to organise a #YesSolidarity referendum.
