A public event designed to fight racism and discrimination is set to be held in Hitchin on Sunday.
'Together We Stand Against Racism' will take place on Windmill Hill from 3pm.
There will be a coming together of people from all sections of our community, to speak a message of support for our England players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, as well as all of the everyday people that have experienced, and still experience racism today, be it online or in person.
Organisers said: "Be it overtly or silently through institutional racial bias and profiling - we stand with those three young lions for their courage and the dedication it took for them, and their peers, to get England into the European Championship final.
"Lauded with praise when winning and then racially abused when they don’t.
"This is not acceptable and highlights the problem we have in this country around race and intolerance.
"Our united voices say, in this event, we stand in unity against, ignorance, hate speech, cyber bullying and racially aggravated incidents. They will not win."
New members welcome...
