The operations of the Red Cross are open to all, accessible, non-discriminating and free of racism.
Racism is a mindset that incites hatred and creates inequality between people. This way of thinking denies equal human rights for everyone. Racism hurts both its victims and society as a whole.

The Red Cross challenges everyone to take action against racism. We encourage you to adopt our anti-racism guidelines in volunteering activities and within your own community, e.g. hobby group or workplace.
