Unar - the Italian Office against Discrimination operating since 2004 with the purpose of promoting equal treatment – is launching the campaign “turn off discrimination, turn on rights” which has the aim to raise public awareness on the need to remove all forms of discrimination and better inform victims on the tools of complaint available. The campaign aims to highlight the services offered by the Unar Contact Center. Through the free phone number 800901010 and the website www.unar.it it collects complaints of victims or testimonials of discrimination related to ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
In a moment in which intercultural dialogue and respect for differences are often objects of debate, the key message of the campaign is that discrimination is forbidden and that for this purpose, the Unar Contact Center is a point of reference and an effective tool to facilitate immersion and remove discrimination.
