Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism educational charity that aims to tackle racism nationally.
Each year in October, the charity champions Wear Red Day. In 2023, the day will be celebrated on Friday 20 October.
On Wear Red Day, we ask students, staff, stakeholders and our local communities to proudly wear red to show their support to tackle racism and to initiate conversation.
Last year, an incredible 440,000 individuals registered to celebrate Wear Red Day.
Show Racism the Red Card utilises prolific professional footballers to champion their message. Their aim is to: Change Hearts. Change Minds. Change Lives.
How can I get involved?
For those able to, we ask you wear red clothing to college and donate what you can on October 20. The Student Enrichment and Engagement teams will be at college collecting donations throughout the day.
