The Educational Institute of Scotland is a sponsor of Show Racism the Red Card which is an anti-racism charity, which was established in January 1996. The aim of Show Racism the Red Card is to produce anti-racist educational resources, which harness the high profile of professional footballers to combat racism.
Show Racism The Red Card is an anti-racist educational charity. We aim to combat racism through enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message to young people and others.
Show Racism The Red Card acknowledges that racism changes, as do the experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic communities in the UK. Our message and activities therefore need to be able to respond to such changes as and when appropriate.
We achieve this through:
• Producing educational resources.
• Developing activities to encourage people, including young people, to challenge racism.
• In parts of the UK, challenging racism in the game of football and other sports.
