A comprehensive overview of the anti-racism education charity's work in England, Scotland & Wales in the last year
“The last year has been a highly productive one for Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) in which we have worked with over 50,000 young people and over 4,000 adults. In very difficult economic conditions for the voluntary sector, our staff team has moved heaven and earth to maintain delivery across a wide variety of sectors.”
Ged Grebby, Chief Executive, Show Racism the Red Card
Show Racism the Red Card has completed this year’s annual review; a document detailing the activities and achievements of the campaign over the last 12 months.
The review features reviews all educational activity delivered with the support of SRtRC’s many partners, as well as providing a synopsis of campaign activity delivered through partnerships with football clubs.
Honorary president Shaka Hislop neatly summed up the back drop against which much of the charity’s successes had been delivered saying “The playing field that campaigns like SRtRC operate on has never been even."
“The need is clearly more compelling than it seems whilst the task is becoming more daunting. As I review the campaign’s results and projections annually I grow increasingly impressed with the work undertaken by the workers, coaches and volunteers, who give their time, intellect and creativity in pursuit of an ideal.”
“I remain in awe of the students who express themselves through their artwork, writing, and willingness to shape their own futures. A huge thank-you also to the footballers who volunteer their time in support of us all.”
“The year has shown us that sport can shape the wider world. Let that shape be one that we can all be proud of.”
Looking back over an action-packed period of work Ged Grebby, Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card said “The last year has been a highly productive one for Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) in which we have worked with over 50,000 young people and over 4,000 adults.”
“In very difficult economic conditions for the voluntary sector, our staff team has moved heaven and earth to maintain delivery across a wide variety of sectors.”
“The issue of immigration has constantly been in the news, with a whole section of the tabloid press deliberately scaremongering about migrants on an almost daily basis.”
“The issues of immigration and Islamophobia will be important to SRtRC in 2014-15. We will be building upon the resources we currently have at our disposal to try to combat these two prevalent forms of racism.”
