Yesterday’s match against Bulgaria saw the clear message of Show Racism the Red Card in the stands. As we near our 25th anniversary as a charity we realize that working alongside the Football Association for Wales (FAW) has been central to our journey to becoming and maintaining the status of UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity.
Show Racism the Red Card we believe that the first step to change is accepting that there is a problem in the first place. The second step is to set priorities accordingly and this is why we are working closer than ever with the FAW to share a message that we both believe in.
“Recent events have once again highlighted the struggle that black and minority ethnic communities continue to experience in their daily lives, along with the oppressive and systemic racism that still exists in our society.
While there has been some progress made in football, there is more that must be done. We are committed to tackling inequity at all levels of the game and pledge to step up our efforts by developing a new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion plan for Wales. We believe education is vital and working alongside our partners Show Racism the Red Card we will be developing a range of educational seminars and resources for the football family. We are dedicated to increasing the representation and inclusion of ethnic minorities at all levels of the game and throughout the FAW.
Challenging racism in football and society is all our responsibility and we need everyone’s support throughout the football family in Wales. Together, we can all make a difference!”
Jason Webber – Equality, Diversity and Integrity Manager Football Association of Wales.
We would like to thank the FAW for their continued support in Wales and in helping spread the message to our future generations.
