Jaz Dhami joins Liverpool for new equality campaign
BRITISH Asian Bhangra star Jaz Dhami has signed for Liverpool – as part of its Equality 4 All Summer campaign.
The music star will support the campaign which aims to integrate diverse communities across Merseyside through football.
The Equality 4 All Project has been devised to engage with young people from ethnic and excluded backgrounds, regardless of their race, religion, gender, social background or sexual orientation.
The camps provide opportunities for young people to take part in a series of coaching sessions and workshops during the holidays, whilst also addressing issues surrounding social inclusion and health.
Speaking about his involvement with the campaign Jaz said: “I am excited to take part in the club’s Equality 4 All camps as the project proactively engages young people from the black and minority ethnic communities to come together in a fun way under the legendary LFC brand.
“The club has a multi-cultural ethos and following and the Equality 4 All project provides youngsters with a prime opportunity to learn about different cultures that in turn helps to break down barriers by using the power of football.”
Liverpool FC’s Social Inclusion Officer Rishi Jain added: “We are delighted that our Equality 4 All project is being supported by artists like Jaz.
“Music, like football, connects and unites people globally and it was great to see the youngsters participating in our Equality 4 All project fully engage with Jaz and have a lot of fun.”
