On Thursday 24th November, Derby County Football Club will be hosting a Show Racism the Red Card event at Pride Park Stadium to teach young people about racism.
Pupils will take part in an anti-racism workshop and get a chance to pose questions to the panel of players, Chris Powell, Councillor Afzal and other guests.
This event has been funded by Derby City Council who has worked closely with schools, Derby County and its official charity, Derby County Community Trust.
Cabinet Member for Cohesion and Integration Councillor Asaf Afzal said:
My priority is to tackle all forms of racism and hate in our city and to create cohesive and integrated communities. We all want Derby to be a place where people feel they belong and have real opportunities for a good life and future. Our aim is to ensure Derby continues to be a city where people have a sense of belonging, contribute to society and get on well together.
Derby County captain Richard Keogh said:
Everyone at Derby County is thrilled to be able to help to promote the great work that Show Racism the Red Card does. We all believe that we can build on success of their previous campaigns to show once again that there is no place for racism.
