The NUT supports Show Racism the Red Card, the campaign that uses top footballers to educate against racism.
Show Racism the Red Card has filmed professional football players addressing issues surrounding racism. The films help teachers and other training professionals to deliver training in their schools and workplaces. Each of the films is accompanied by an education pack containing lesson plans and activities for all ages.
