Councillors from Stockton came together to help launch Show Racism the Red Card's national School Competition.
Councillors from Stockton on Tees Borough Council came together last night in support of the work of anti-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card. The show of support for the charity’s national schools competition came at Stockton Borough Council’s full council meeting in the borough’s council chamber.
Show Racism the Red Card’s North East Education Manager, Craig Bankhead, said
“Our school competition has been running for many years now and is an effective way of educating young people of all ages about the dangers of racism in society. We work with more than 14,000 young people in the region every year but the competition gives many more young people of all ages the opportunity to engage with this important subject”
Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism charity which was established in the north east 15 years ago. Previous prize giving ceremonies for the national competition have been held at high profile venues such as Wembley, The Emirates Stadium and St James’s Park.
Councillor for Hardwick ward, Cllr Norma Stephenson, said “Stockton Borough Council considers educating against racism to be paramount in the borough’s schools and fully supports the work of Show Racism the Red Card.”
