New members will strengthen the charity’s North East team and enable the delivery of more anti-racism education.
I am really excited to develop my practice by learning about using philosophy with children and young people as a way to help them question their assumptions and become critical thinkers.”

Show Racism the Red Card is pleased to announce the appointment of three new education workers.
Tina Simbo, Annie Rutter and Justine King have formally joined the organisation in the last few weeks and are currently undertaking a wide range of internal training in preparation for delivery to young people and adults in a variety of settings.
The three part-time workers bring with them a wealth of experience as well as new skills to support existing team members in the development and delivery of successful anti-racism education.
Speaking about her motivation for applying for the role Justine said “I’ve worked in the area of empowerment and anti-discrimination with the Black and Minority Ethnic community for a long while. The job here at SRtRC will give me the opportunity to approach anti-racism work from a different angle, whilst still working within an area which is very important to me personally.”
Annie believes the role will enable her to develop new skills and areas of knowledge “I am trying to brush up my knowledge of genetics as part of a new DNA project being undertaken by the team. I am really excited to develop my practice by learning about using philosophy with children and young people as a way to help them question their assumptions and become critical thinkers.”
When asked about what she perceived as the biggest challenge in working with young people to discuss the issue of racism Tina said “Countering some of the misleading and harmful messages they often receive from mainstream media, popular culture and their peers.”
Everyone at Show Racism the Red Card would like to welcome Tina, Annie and Justine to the organisation and are very excited about working with them in the future.
