Pink against Racism

Already in 2020, the head association of all of Duisburg's sports clubs (Stadtsportbund Duisburg, Germany) managed to set a clear signal against racism with its clubs. With t-shirts the athletes made the topic a matter close to their hearts. With numerous actions they showed a clear edge against inhuman behavior and colored Duisburg's sports landscape pink.

Since racism is an issue beyond national borders, other sports associations and organizations have joined the campaign. Together, a colorful and varied program for the International Weeks Against Racism (March 15, 2021 - March 28, 2021) is created for the sports clubs.

The German Youth Fencing Association supports this and calls on the fencers to show pink!

Thinking black-or-white? No, pink!

Even if we like to think in black and white, when it comes to fencing, we are a colorful sport. Our fencing clubs show that we live in multiculturalism. International sports friends are always welcome - regardless of their cultural background - we are all the same.

The German Youth Fencing Association supports the campaign and calls on all fencing clubs to show their colors.

Show PINK from 15 to 28 March 2021

Our vision is to work with you to set a visible sign against inhuman behavior in sport.

We would like to implement our vision together with as many member associations and cooperation partners as possible. Through the color pink, our message becomes visible on the web and all other communication channels. Already existing activities and installed programs of sport in North-Rhine-Westphalia are supported and made visible by our project and public attention.

Our clear message: Color the sports landscape PINK and stand up against racism!

Participate and send a message!

We call on you to take part in the action with your members of the sports club.

Be loud and put on pink shirts or other pink things when training, talk about the action, and encourage others to join in. Show that fencing is pink and that there is no place for racism.

Use the following hashtags on social media:

#PinkAgainstEacism #fencing #dfj #FIGHTracism

CRAFT TEMPLATE

Everyone can take part!

We want as many athletes as possible to express their cosmopolitan opinion in the form of pink, hand-made hearts.

Regardless of age, gender, origin, or religion - everyone can and should take part. Feel free to upload a photo of your hand-made heart on Insta / Facebook using the following hashtags:

#pinkagainstracism #fencing #dfj #FIGHTracism

This way, we can draw attention to the action on social media together. You can also send us your photo by email to info@fechterjugend.de. We will create a collage from all the photos, which we will then publish on our homepage and our social media.

And this is how it works:
Step 1: Print out the HEART.
Step 2: Cut out the HEART along the dotted line.
Step 3: Post your heart on social media.
