George Floyd

George Floyd

Today marks one year since the murder of George Floyd.  We would encourage you to take some time to recognise and reflect on this. Although we have seen some progress with more organisations engaging in conversations about race, it is important to recognise there is still a long way to go. Despite the protests that happened last year and years of anti-racist work and activism, racial inequalities continue to persist in society. Black people are  9 times more likely to be stopped and searched in the UK, and black women are four times more likely to die during childbirth compared to white women.

Despite the lack of significant progress, it is important that we keep fighting for equality and changes in legislation. Together, we can make a difference. Join us on the 26th of June as we continue to reflect on the impact of George Floyd and Covid-19 on ethnically diverse communities.
