Black Lives Matter Webinar: Tackling Racial Inequality within Faith Communities
July 1 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm
It’s been one month since the death of George Floyd in the USA, which has brought the issue of anti-Black racism into sharp focus. While this tragic event took place thousands of miles away, we cannot ignore the reality of racism, inequality and discrimination faced by Black and ethnic minority communities in Britain. We must redouble our efforts to confront our biases but also look at how our organisational and societal practices can be more inclusive.
We have convened an expert panel to help us understand the impact of discrimination and inequality and make lasting changes for ourselves and our organisations.
