Sponsored by the Helsinki Regional Transport Authority (HSL), Helsinki City Transport (HKL) and the Finnish League for Human Rights, the “End of the Line for Discrimination” campaign encourages us to act and support victims if we see somebody being subjected to harassment or discrimination.
Public transport belongs to everyone – let’s put a stop to discrimination now.
WHAT CAN YOU DO IF YOU SEE SOMEONE BEING HARASSED OR DISCRIMINATED AGAINST?
Ask whether the victim needs help, even if the incident has passed. Make sure they can continue safely on their way.
Be sure to report the incident, e.g. to the security guards, the driver or the police. To put an end to discrimination we must make it visible.
