Migrant Voice is a proud supporter of Show the Racism the Red Card’s new educational film, “Immigration; What’s the Story.”
Migrant Voice members contributed to the film which features a wide range of people discussing their own journeys and experiences of living & working in the UK. These migrant voices are supported by testimonies from professional footballers & celebrities including Gary Lineker, Manchester United & England’s Chris Smalling, Sunderland AFC & England’s Jermain Defoe & Chelsea & England’s Eniola Aluko.
SRtRC have produced educational films as part of their anti-racism work with young people and adults throughout the organisation’s history, and the latest film explores the issues surrounding immigration and attempts to challenge some of the common myths and misconceptions that can lead to the development of prejudice.
Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) will be holding a special preview screening of the film on Thursday 22 October at the Headquarters of sponsors the National Union of Teachers (NUT), Mabledon Place, London, WC1H 9BD on Thursday 22nd October at 17.00 pm.
The special screening will be attended by Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, as well as Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite the Union; both key sponsors of the film and of SRtRC’s wider educational work. A range of additional guests will also be in attendance including key campaign representatives and supporters, including Nazek Ramadan, Director of Migrant Voice.
Show Racism the Red Card is encouraging campaign supporters to wear red on Friday 23 October to commemorate a day of action across England, Scotland and Wales.
It is hoped that young people and adults alike will arrive at school or work in red to demonstrate their stance against racism and to raise funds to support the delivery of anti-racism education throughout the UK.
