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 annual review features an overview of all educational activity delivered throughout the UK 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 looks back to last year “2016 really was the year that was. There was so much reason for us at Show Racism The Red Card to celebrate, and then again the year offered so much for us to take pause.”
“In the face of the wake-up call that 2016 provided the response globally provides further evidence of our core principles, and an impossible to ignore call to action.”
“I cannot credit enough the staff for their work for the last 20 years, or the last 12 months, or for last week, or for the work they’ll be boldly undertaking today. Despite the continued challenges of such work we are in as strong a position as we’ve ever been.”
Looking back over an action-packed period of work Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card, Ged Grebby, said “Despite having large cuts to the UK budget we have managed to work with 48,596 young people. In addition to this, over 14,000 young people took part in the anti-racism school competitions in England, Scotland and Wales.”
“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 rise in hate crime after the EU Referendum vote, resulted in the Home Office producing a report entitled 'Action Against Hate'. We publicly welcomed this document, as for the first time under the current Government, it outlined a strategy for tackling race hate crime through education. We look forward to seeing more action from the UK Government on hate crime in the next few years.”
