PCS is supporting the Wear Red Day national day of action today (19) to help fund anti-racism education for young people and adults throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
We’re encouraging our members and branches to wear red and donate £1 to education charity Show Racism the Red Card on its fourth annual Wear Red Day, which is taking place in England and Wales. In Scotland the event was held on 5 October.
The charity’s educational work is crucial in challenging racist attitudes in society and breaking down barriers within communities. Young people continue to be victims of racial abuse every day and research has shown that 75% of teachers have dealt with racism in their school without receiving proper training or support.
Every penny raised during WRD enables the campaign to work with more young people and adults across the UK to challenge racism in society.
