SRtRC Wales will be launching their #WalesIsMyHome educational film next week during Hate Crime Awareness Week.

The Wales Is My Home film was produced by Break Every Chain Productions and was funded by Sport Wales and explores the issues of immigration and racism from the point of view of the Welsh community.

During the week a number of full interviews will be released each day culminating with the launch of the main film on Friday the 14th of October which is also Wear Red Day in Scotland, where communities will take a stand against racism by wearing red to school and work.

The film features a range of interviews with individuals that have a migrant background or are Refugees.

In tackling Hate Crime, SRtRC Scotland will also be releasing segments of its very own #ThisIsMyHome film sponsored by the Education Institute of Scotland, exploring the positive impacts of diversity within a Scottish context all whilst taking a stand against racism. The film features interviews with Mark McGhee, Ikechi Anya and wonderful community members from across Scotland speaking of their unique experiences pertaining to racism.

We would like to hear from all communities within Scotland expressing their feelings on the ways in which diversity has enriched their lives.
