On Thursday March 21st, stand with all the right minded people who cannot tolerate racism and wear red. Wear Red Day is an anti-racism initiative by the Immigrant Council of Ireland initiative, inviting schools, businesses, sports clubs and community groups across the country to wear red and help fund raise for the fight against racism in Ireland.

Over 120 schools and businesses took part in the initiative last year, and this year looks sure to repeat that success.

Commenting ahead of the event, Brian Killoran, CEO at the Immigrant Council said: “Wear Red Day is an important opportunity for schools, businesses, sports clubs and community groups alike to send out a strong message that they will continue to challenge racism in all forms. It is a shared responsibility across society, in our homes, schools, workplaces and communities, to ensure that an anti-racism ethos is maintained throughout the year.”

The Immigrant Council is encouraging participants to share their Wear Red Day activities on social media using the hashtag #WRD24.

Wear Red Day takes place on Thursday March 21st. Further information is available here.
