The Red Cross’ week against racism takes place on 20‒26 March 2017.

The annual anti-racism campaign of the Finnish Red Cross will again take place around the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 21 March. You are all invited to show your support, fight racism and participate in the campaign!
During the week against racism we encourage people to raise discussion on finding ways to build non-discriminating atmosphere. Participate on social media: #idecide
The #minäpäätän #jagbestämmer #idecide campaign highlights how everyone can take part in creating an equal and safe community and society that is open to all.
