Experience a different kind of walk that breaks down barriers between strangers and rise against racism with OnePeople.sg in the annual Orange Ribbon Walk 2018.
Join us for a fun and meaningful 3.8km walk along iconic attractions of Singapore where you can show your support against racism as one community, regardless of race or religion. The walk is a great platform to connect with people you might not usually get to meet or talk to, to share and learn about each other’s ethnic and cultural diversity, and to remember that we can create the world we want to live in, one step at a time.
Choose to rise against racism and register now!
The Orange Ribbon symbolises friendship, brotherhood and kinship, underpinned by the values of respect, understanding and trust. Each year, OnePeople.sg leads the Orange Ribbon Movement to rally the community to speak up against prejudice, and to build a more inclusive, more empathetic, and more connected world. The vision is to build an iconic ground up movement against prejudice by engaging individuals of all walks and various groups of the community such as youths, families, grassroots, religious organisations and many more.
Established in 1997, OnePeople.sg was repositioned and launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in 2007 to champion racial harmony initiatives in Singapore. The organisation serves as a ground up national body bringing together key community stakeholders; the Self-Help Groups, Community Development Councils and People’s Association together to pool resources and introduce meaningful initiatives to promote multiracialism and serve as the main resource centre for race relations. OnePeople.sg is a registered charity and has been accorded the Institution of Public Character (IPC) status. Since its launch, the organisation has implemented significant initiatives to foster deeper understanding between our diverse ethnic and religious communities.
Hear from our advocates and partners about what inspires and drives them to rise against racism and build a more inclusive and harmonious society on this island we call home. Through their experiences, we hope to share stories of inspiration that seek to build a world beyond racism. Head over to our Instagram page and hear more of their stories here !
Why is it so important to talk about racism and racial harmony?
Although we pride ourselves on being an inclusive and multiracial society, racism still exists in parts of Singapore, and we need to start having real conversations about race and what racial harmony really means if we want to rise above it.
In wanting to explore this topic more, we decided to put this to the test, and to see how people in Singapore would respond if racism happens in their presence. What would you do if this happened to you? Watch the videos here and share your thoughts in the comment thread.
We can only address issues of racism when we start having real conversations about it.
Join us in rising above racism. We are stronger together.
