Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge, will tomorrow (Friday 19 October) be joining young people from around the city to hear what they are doing in support of ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ 2018. Mr Zeichner will first be visiting Arbury Primary School in the morning and then Cambridge Regional College in the afternoon.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I am delighted to be visiting both Arbury Primary School and Cambridge Regional College to hear how they will be supporting the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ campaign. I have been invited to join pupils at a primary school as well as students at a college, which tells me that young people in Cambridge care about this issue and I am very proud of that.”
“Fighting racism is an important issue for our communities and it is something that we must continue to be vigilant about, it was only a few months ago Cambridge was visited by Tommy Robinson supporters that champion his words of division and hate. This city has a long tradition of being opening, welcoming and inclusive and I am sure that future generations will keep it that way.”
Kathy Whiting, Senior Leader at Arbury Primary School, commented: “Campaigns like these are really important to our school community, and we are glad to have the support of the local MP for Cambridge.”
Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism educational charity that is focused on fighting racism through enabling role models to present an anti-racist message to young people and others. The students have been asked to show their support by wearing something red tomorrow. Mr Zeichner will be joining the students to show his support for the campaign.
