The Show Racism the Red Card team were delighted to be able to visit Hampden Park, the home of Scottish Football on Thursday 25th May to deliver an anti-racism educational event with local primary pupils from Mount Florida.
Scotland player Leeann Ross along with the National Team Coach Anna Signeul joined the SRtRC team in the afternoon to take questions from the young people. This is the second educational event we have delivered with the National Team in Scotland.
Pupils from Mount Florida Primary had taken part in a series of anti-racism workshops with Show Racism the Red Card within their school looking at what racism is, dangerous stereotypes, immigration and anti-Muslim hate.
Anna Signeul, Scotland Women's National Coach: "The women's national team players are proud to be role models for young people in Scotland, and it's important for us to support events like this.
"The latest Show Racism The Red Card campaign is a great way of educating young people to recognise discrimination. Today's event was an engaging and informative way of tackling this subject, and we were delighted to play a part in it."
Nicola Hay Campaign Manager, Show Racism the Red Card, said:
“The dangers of racism are significant and education is vital in order that young people can recognise these and other forms of discrimination and be equipped to safely challenge them as they grow and develop.
“Schools are very keen to engage with the campaign and the young people we have worked with are very positive about it.
“The national women’s team are strong supporters of the campaign and it is great to be able to bring pupils along to such an iconic stadium to learn about anti-racism with female role models”
