March 21: Show Racism the Door
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 activity kit is downloadable for free as a PDF. 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.
