PRESTON STANDS TOGETHER AGAINST RACISM

UCLan hosts community event

A choir made up of pupils from Preston schools recently performed at a successful event to mark the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The nearly 100-strong Standing Together Against Racism (STAR) Choir featured students from Ashton Community Science College and Fulwood Academy.

The popular event, celebrating diversity and opposing racism, was attended by over 250 people and took place at The University of Central Lancashire’s (UCLan) Venue 53.

Members of the UK Youth Parliament spoke at the event. Chengkai Xie spoke about Preston's harmonious and cohesive diverse community that work together to promote fairness, justice and equality for all citizens. Ammaarah James spoke about the negativity of racism and the need for tolerance in society. Other presentations were given by Anisah Zakariya-Hill and Micah Bimson about anti-racism and the need for tolerance.

Pupils from Ashton Community Science College gave a drama and dance performance during the evening.

These events formed part of the wider event to mark the International Day, which was centred on Preston Flag Market. This involved a range of community groups and organisations coming together to celebrate the city's cultural life with live music and performances.
