Show Racism The Red Card
The Worldwide Voices Group at Donegal Youth Service show racism the red card for this year’s #SRTRC creative competition. Young people who participate in the group made a collective decision to enter the competition this year and have their voices heard.
What is Show Racism The Red Card?
“Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racist charity that has been growing from 1995 when Shaka Hislop donated £50 to a local anti-racism campaign in Newcastle upon Tyne. Show Racism the Red Card is now present in United Kingdom, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Ireland. The charity in Ireland was formally launched in Ireland in 2006.
We produce anti-racist educational resources, which help to tackle racism. Our educational materials are very accessible and have been very successful. Our resources include our video, education pack, factsheets, downloadable interactive resources and online training module, which are all used to help tackle racism. We deliver programmes which help impact to tackle racism and promote integration.”
