"Eka men samadena' a public campaign against racism was held in the central province on the 27th of March in 2016. The campaign was organized by Sri Lanka Unites school chapters of Republican International School Nuwara-Eliya and Zahira College Matale. The project was supported and directed by the 'Champions of Change' department of the organization.
The students used the campaign as an opportunity to engage with the general public and have conversations with them on their views of racism in Sri Lanka.
It was encouraging to see young and old, Sinhalese, Tamil, and Muslim Sri Lankans support the cause.A signature board for pledges by the public to stand against racism in Sri Lanka filled up within just an hour.
The campaign, however, was not meant to be just an event but a social experiment to understand the impact of such campaigns in countering racism.
