Each October, ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ holds its annual Wear Red Day. Friday, 18 October will mark the campaigns fifth anniversary. This year, Ceredigion County Council will be showing its support throughout its schools, offices and council chamber by wearing red.
Wear Red Day is a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses & individuals to wear red and raise money to help facilitate the delivery of anti-racism education for young people & adults throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s largest anti-racism educational charity.
Ellen ap Gwynn, Leader of Ceredigion County Council and members’ Champion for Equalities and Diversity said: “Sadly, we still regularly hear of racism occuring in society and sport. Campaigns such as this raise awareness of the situation and provide the opportunity for our schools, offices and staff to unite in showing that racism will not be tolerated in Ceredigon. I will be wearing red on 18 October and I hope you will too. ”
