Show Racism the Red Card


Each October Show Racism the Red Card holds its annual Wear Red Day.

The 5th annual Wear Red Day, which URTU has given its full support, will take place in Scotland on Friday 4 October 2019 and in England and Wales on Friday 18 October. 

Wear Red Day is a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses & individuals to wear red and donate £1 to help facilitate the delivery of anti-racism education for young people & adults throughout England, Scotland & Wales. For just £5, Show Racism the Red Card can educate one child for a whole day.

Every penny raised during Wear Red Day enables the campaign to work with more young people and adults across the UK to challenge racism in society.

You and your fellow colleagues can get involvedby coming to work sporting something Red for the day. It can be as subtle as wearing a Red tie or even Red socks!

To register your workplace or get involved as an individual just get in touch to let them know what you are planning! Visit or email

Once you have registered, you will be sent a Wear Red Day Supporters Pack that includes our iconic red cards for photo opportunities as well as other goodies.

Racism affects everyone and every pound they receive from Wear Red Day can make a real difference to young people's lives.

The funds raised during Wear Red Day will help them continue to support and educate young people and teachers throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Racism continues to be an issue in our society with many people suffering abuse each day.

Education is key to challenging racism in society. By working with the next generation in schools, has a big impact towards eradicating racism and creating a better world in the future.
