Civic Centre to go red to support Show Racism the Red Card "Wear Red Day"

16 October 2020

Local residents will see the Civic Centre lit up a vibrant red today (Friday 16 October) as Brent Council shows support for the “Show Racism the Red Card” wear red day initiative.

Earlier this year the Civic Centre was lit purple to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement following the horrific death of George Floyd.

Brent Council has also recently committed to improving the lives of Black residents in the borough and has introduced a Black Community Action plan following the input and support of community leaders around the borough.

Cllr Muhammed Butt said: “We stand against racism in all its forms and will work hard to stamp it out wherever we see it. As a council we are proud of our diversity and all the benefits it brings to our amazing borough.”
