Show Racism the Red Card Event 2016 +15th November 2016
Tigers Trust and Hull City supported Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) efforts to educate local students by hosting an event at the Airco Arena on Tuesday 15th November 2016.
Activities at the event helped young people to explore stereotypes, evaluate language and terminology and reflect on prejudice. A question and answer session took place, with young people putting their questions about discrimination to a panel of role models, including Hull City players Jake Livermore and Curtis Davies and local Police Officers, Chris Sewell and Karen Turner.
James Kingett, Campaign Worker said
“SRtRC worked with Hull City & the Tigers Trust on a very successful anti-racism education event last season, which also included a focus on tackling homophobia, biphobia & transphobia. It is great to be going back to the club during anti-bullying week to talk to more local young people about the impact of racism & prejudice.”
“Together with educational partners Run with It, the Trust has great relationships with schools in the local area and were fully behind the objectives of the event from the start.”
“We are delighted that the club are continuing to support the campaign during this, our 20th year and at a time when challenging racism & rejecting hatred has rarely been as important.”
The educational events at football clubs allow young people to experience a firsthand interaction with anti-racism role models in the form of professional footballers and spend time thinking critically about this important issue.
