Wear Red Day Announcement

On today Friday 24th November, all over Ireland, actions are taking place to make a stand against racism within schools, business and elsewhere to make a stand against racism.  Participants are wearing red instead to show support.

We believe in fairplay and to achieve our goals we need teamwork, communication and trust among classmates, workmates and all in society. The spirit of fairplay is for a level playing field for all and that means there can be no tolerance for racism and any form of discrimination.  Make a donation and help educate against racism and promote a society of inclusion for all.

Leaflets, stickers, red cards, posters and press release templates were among the resources received by each group involved.  On the day, participating groups sent us pictures and reports.  They also spread the word on social media using the #WRD17 hashtag.
