RESIDENTS are being urged to 'show racism the red card' by wearing red today.

Show Racism the Red Card’s 6th annual 'Wear Red Day' is taking place on Friday, October 16.

Wear Red Day is a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses and individuals to wear red and donate £1 to help fund anti-racism education for young people and adults across the UK to spread awareness and put an end to hate crimes.

The organisers have said the day is more important than ever this year given the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and the increasing attention that anti-racism education is getting.

Jack Sargeant, Member of the Senedd for Alyn and Deeside is encouraging resident to get involved online by sharing pictures wearing red with #WRD2020 to help spread the message.

The leader recently reported on Jack’s work supporting the CWU charity football shirt collaboration with Show Racism the Red Card.

The MS said: “Wear Red Day is a fantastic way to get involved from home and show your support for the fantastic work Show Racism the Red Card does.

“Football is a powerful tool and brings together millions of fans from across the country. We can use this shared love of the game to raise awareness and put an end to racism - together we can make a difference.”
