Doreen Lawrence is a long-standing supporter of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign, and she will be visiting their North East headquarters on Thursday 2nd August. Show Racism the Red Card welcomed Doreen into their Hall of Fame last September, in tribute to her inspirational work in the field of race equality and her fight for justice following the racist murder of her son, Stephen.
As part of her visit, Newcastle City Councilis to host a Civic Reception in her honour. The Lord Mayor will welcome Doreen, before the Leader of the City Council will give testimony to her dedication to human rights and her fight for justice for the victims of racially motivated crime.

Tickets are available online for £10. The Fashion Show includes a champagne reception, live band and charity raffle. All proceeds from the evening will be shared between Show Racism the Red Card are the Stephen Lawrence Educational Trust.

Ged Grebby (Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card) said: “We are delighted that Doreen Lawrence is visiting the North East. She is truly an inspiration to all of us in the field of anti-racism. I am sure that those attending the reception will be looking forward to hearing Doreen speak.
“I am hugely grateful to the local businesses who have come together to organise A Night of Fashion – it is overwhelming the support they have offered and the number of people wanting to be involved. This is a clear reflection of the respect and admiration that Doreen holds.”
