Not Illegal - Human

Take action with us this international #migrantsday on the 18th December to stop the media using the term ‘illegal migrants’.

The term 'illegal' is the most common precursor to the word migrant in the media. This dehumanising and inaccurate reporting is directly fueling the rise of racism.

We are calling on all media outlets to drop the term 'illegal migrant' and portray positive stories of people from a migrant background, creating a new vision for a more fair and humane media. A media where we are seen as #notillegalHUMAN.

With the rise of hate crime going hand in hand with the negative media narratives that dehumanise people from a migrant background, we need your voice to join this call for change today. Sign this thunderclap now to create a loud noise that can't be ignored on international #migrantsday calling on the media to drop the term ‘illegal migrants’ now.
