This Saturday 8 July the WAAFL is encouraging all players, officials and umpires to wear red arm bands to raise awareness of and remove racial vilification in football.
The red arm band is used to symbolise Earth-Blood-Life; we come from different places but we are all the same.
Those wearing a red arm band will have committed to zero tolerance of vilification, abuse, and an understanding that we are all alike.
Red Arm Band Round also coincide’s with NAIDOC Week which celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The WAFL will also be celebrating NAIDOC week where clubs will wear specially designed uniforms to represent the heritage of the clubs and their Aboriginal players.
