Show Racism the Door
About the Campaign
Every year, in recognition of March 21st: International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, MCoS executes a provincial anti-racism educational campaign. This year’s campaign features the theme “Show Racism the Door” and the hashtag #MarchOutRacism (see poster on right). In 2017, we are encouraging participation in the campaign through a Show Racism the Door activity kit.
We invite members, funders, partners, schools, workplaces, faith groups, etc. to download the free activity kit and execute it leading up to March 21st. The kit will be downloadable as a PDF from this page starting in February 2017. You can also contact MCoS at firstname.lastname@example.org to have a kit mailed to you.
These Show Racism the Door activity kits can be done anywhere (with permission in public spaces). It could be part of another event or a stand-alone activity. The idea is to raise awareness of racism, how it works, the damage it causes and how we can recognize and reject it. This door activity is sure to start a lot of conversations.
Challenge others to also participate in the Show Racism the Door activity and post their content to social media using #MarchOutRacism
This activity kit accompanies the March 21st ‘Show Racism the Door’ campaign. It is meant to be printed and used on an actual door. It also contains links to resources and downloads related to the campaign and anti-racism work. Instructions are inside the activity kit. You can share this kit with anyone and challenge them to participate in the activity.
