Today marks Show Racism the Red Card's 6th annual Wear Red Day.
450 schools, 200 businesses and thousands of people across England Scotland and Wales will be taking part in the annual fundraising campaign. The UK will also go red, as a number of iconic locations across the country will light up today, including the London Eye! Wear Red Day is a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses & individuals to wear red and donate in order to help facilitate the delivery of anti-racism education for young people & adults across the country.
This year we have seen the global uprising of the Black Lives Matter movement after the murder of George Floyd in the summer, with players continuing to show their solidarity to the anti-racism movement by taking a knee. Now it is important that the momentum continues during October's Black History Month and beyond - turning words into actions.
Now is the time for change.
PFA members and their families are being urged to wear red clothing today to show support for Show Racism the Red Card – and to raise money along the way. You can send photographs and messages to SRtRC via social media using the hashtag #WRD20 to help them promote your show of solidarity.
