Show Racism the Red Card is once again holding its Fortnight of Action (FoA) from 9th till 23rd October.
This period of concerted action encourages participation from all sections of communities to celebrate diversity and tackle racism.
A major aim of the Fortnight of Action is to encourage anti-racism actions, events and initiatives to take place throughout the year.
Many organisations begin their actions during October and run follow-up events during the year. There are other organisations including schools and community groups that look to the Fortnight of Action for ideas and inspirations.
One proven way of making a difference is to act on a local level to break down barriers that lead to racist attitudes and behaviour. These barriers can include:
- Racial stereotyping
- Ignorance of other cultures
- Excluding practices
- The idea that any one cultural or ethnic group is superior to another
We hope that this year as many people as possible get behind the FoA.
SPFL teams will be taking action at matches on the weekend of 18th and 19th October
The FoA will kick off with a launch football match at the Palace of Art sports complex on Wednesday 8th October at 1.30pm.
