Anti-racism educational charity Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) has launched a new community awareness platform called Voices created by the team at Frog Systems.
Voices brings together the experiences of those who have suffered racism alongside advice from those who are working to stop it, creating a powerful public platform to support the charity’s campaign work.
As the name suggests, Voices is built around bite-sized video testimonies of people sharing their own lived experience. Educational resources from Show Racism the Red Card and other anti-racism organisations are presented on the same page as each video along with direct links to information and support.
Frog Systems worked with SRtRC to record videos with people from the worlds of sport, education and wider society to highlight the impact of racist behaviour and share knowledge about the way racism is being tackled in workplaces, schools, teams and communities. The result is a free to access, safe digital space that anyone can use to learn more about the impact of racism and how to challenge it. Among those contributing their stories are The Right Honourable Stuart Lawrence, footballer Anita Asante and television presenter Ben Cajee.
Phil Worms, CEO of Frog Systems, said: “We are proud to be playing a part in giving a new voice to this important subject. The anti-racism message should be at the forefront 365 days a year, not just when the media pick it up when a young footballer gets abused. We hope the platform we’ve created with Show Racism the Red Card proves to be a really valuable public resource.”
Ged Grebby, CEO of Show Racism the Red Card, added: “Voices is a new publicly available platform full of relatable and empathetic stories from real people. It is another step in making our anti-racism message even stronger.”
