Wear Red Day 2023 Trade Union Launch

On the 5th of September SRtRC celebrated the launch of our Wear Red Day 2023 campaign with our trade union partners in London at a special event hosted by Unite the Union.

Representatives of SRtRC, senior Unite officials, sports personalities and patrons such as Andy Christie, Jason Lee, Alex McLeish, Alain Goma, Paul Davis and Perry Groves; all met to hear speeches and support the campaign.

Wear Red Day is our annual flagship fundraising event, this year, taking place on Friday 20th October. Last year, an incredible 440,000 individuals registered to celebrate with us on Wear Red Day. To us it was a sign that we have never been more in demand, more needed or more relevant. Participants are encouraged to wear red for the day, support our anti-racist message and donate towards our anti-racism education programmes.

Show Racism the Red Card has worked with the trade union movement since its foundation in 1996 and have continued to be vital to the campaigns work.

Stuart Grice, Unite EC member for construction said:

“I Was proud to attend the 2023 wear red day launch event And will be showing my support on 20th October in my work place. I encourage everyone to support this important event and let’s show racism the red card once and for all.”
