Refugees welcome here – No to Islamophobia – Yes to diversity

Show Racism the Red Card!

Leicester DeMontfort University UNISON Branch is hosting an event with Show Racism the Red Card https://www.theredcard.org/ on 13 February from 1pm. 

The event will explore the issue of racism, its impact and the experiences of minority groups, alongside how racism can be combated in all its forms.  Refreshments will be provided and free goodie bags for the first 100 through the door!
We have a great line-up of guest speakers including:

·         Roger McKenzie – Assistant General Secretary Unison
·         Chris Iwelumo –  Former Professional Footballer
·         Claire Horne – Solicitor at Thompsons
·         Ben Holman – Campaign Worker at Show Racism the Red Card

Places are FREE but need to be booked through EventBrite – BOOK HERE.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s anti-racism educational charity and utilises the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society.  Challenging racism is part of UNISON’s core work on race equality, using the collective power of our union to tackle discrimination.  For many years trade unions have consistently campaigned against all forms of racism and discrimination in the workplace.
