Supporting Wear Red Day

Wear Red
The Council is supporting the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ campaign and its annual Wear Red Day on Friday, October 21.  

Council staff, along with local residents and businesses across Rhondda Cynon Taf, are being encouraged to show their support and wear red items of clothing on the day, the eighth annual Wear Red Day in Wales.  

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK's leading anti-racism educational charity, which provides educational workshops, training sessions, multimedia packages, and a whole host of other resources, all with the main aim of tackling and eradicating racism in society. 

Show Racism the Red Card  

Established in January 1996, the organisation utilises the high-profile status of sports players and celebrities to publicise its strong message and is keen that everyone plays a part in stamping our racism within our communities and society.  

Councillor Maureen Webber, Deputy Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, with responsibility for equalities, said: “We are once again showing our support to Wear Red Day and are encouraging our local residents and businesses to join us with a united show of solidarity against racism.  

“We all have a part to play in stamping out racism in our society once and for all. Racism comes in many forms, but it is down to us to prevent it from being a part of our lives in the communities in which we live, work and relax.  

“I am delighted the Council is once again supporting the Wear Red Day initiative and I urge everyone to get behind it and let their voices be heard, for the sake of us all and for future generations.”
