Show Racism the Red Card backing Don’t Hate Educate campaign which has been supported by over 95,000 young people so far
The UK Youth Parliament will campaign to challenge negative attitudes around skin colour, heritage and religion, working with others to educate their communities and promote integration.
The campaign will seek to change discriminatory attitudes among young people, and raise levels of understanding about different religions, communities and cultures. It will look to challenge negative portrayals of certain groups on social media and promote diversity and inclusion within communities throughout the UK.
On Friday 22nd January, YMPs will be meeting with MPs as part of a national day of action to discuss the Don’t Hate Educate campaign, asking them for endorsements and support at future education events.
This will be followed up by a day focused on the impact of Social Media which will take place on Friday 29th January when YMPs will be encouraging young people and other campaign supporters to share a series of positive posts via a range of social media platforms.
A wide-ranging programme of local action will then begin in March to coincide with the new term for MYPs.
Show Racism the Red Card have been fortunate to work with local YMP for North Tyneside Rebecca Moore and also recently met with YMP candidate Dillon Blevins.
SRtRC would like to thank all 95,000 young people who voted to tackle racism and religious intolerance; the campaign will be looking to support your activities and the Don’t Hate Educate campaign wherever possible.
