MSPs from Labour, the SNP, the Greens, Scottish Conservatives and the Lib Dems rallied in support forShow Racism the Red Card (SRtRC), ahead of Wear Red Day 2017.
Show Racism the Red Card is organising a day of action in Scotland on Friday 6th October.
We work in schools and workplaces across Scotland as well as working with football clubs and grassroots clubs. Despite our efforts young people and adults continue to be victims of racial abuse every day. Our education work is crucial in challenging racist attitudes in society and breaking down barriers within communities.
We need your support to raise as much as possible to enable us to reach out to as many young people and adults as we can and spread the message “Show Racism the Red Card”.
MSP’s showed their support andwe would like as many people as possible to get involved on the day.
Anas Sarwar MSP who sponsored the event said: “Scotland is an open, diverse and welcoming country, but the forces of hatred have not been silenced.
“Racism is a stain on our society, and I want to see it eradicated so that the next generation of Scots grow up in a more tolerant nation.
“Show Racism The Red Card has been at the vanguard of the fight against prejudice and intolerance, and I am incredibly proud to support the campaign’s tireless work.
“I encourage everyone across Scotland to take part in Wear Red Day on October 6, and join the national day of action against racism.”
Stand in solidarity and show your support on Friday 6th October by wearing something red and spread our message of anti-racism.
