Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is pleased to announce that UCATT has agreed to sponsor educational work and campaign activity nationally as part of a package that will see the union contributing towards the delivery of anti-racism educational workshops and the production of educational resources and professional football club team posters, all of which will feature the UCATT logo.
Steve Murphy, General Secretary of construction union UCATT, said: “UCATT are delighted to sponsor Show Racism the Red card for the first time. The work that SRtRC does in using football to combat racism and xenophobia is exceptional. UCATT looks forward to working with SRtRC.”
SRtRC is the UK’s anti-racism educational charity and was established in January 1996. The organisation utilises the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society. The majority of the campaign’s output is the delivery of education to young people and adults in their schools, their workplaces and at events held in football stadiums. Across Britain, SRtRC delivers training to more than 50,000 individuals per year.
