Wear Red for Show Racism the Red Card Day
Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism education charity, established in 1996. They are working daily in schools throughout England, Scotland & Wales delivering anti-racism workshops to more than 50,000 young people every year, while also providing training to teachers, to help them educate the next generation.
Educating children how to deal with racism as well as teaching them that racism continues to be an issue in our society, with many people suffering abuse each day.
Following on from the England v Bulgaria match incident the charity released this statement.
The charity and SYLO Associates believe that education is key to challenging racism in society, making people aware that things they say and actions they take have an effect on others. By working with the next generation in schools, Show Racism the Red Card Charity can have a big impact towards eradicating racism and creating a better world in the future.

Within your companies you can also make a difference. If you see or hear an act of racism then even if you feel you are not able to challenge the individual yourself, make sure that a manager or company owner is made aware of the facts.
