Stand up against prejudice

15 January 2016

Build your community’s campaign capacity and make multi-culturalism work. Oppose race hatred, scapegoating, racism and fascism where you live or work

The new year brings new challenges, such as the former EDL leader seeking to launch Pegida in the UK, spread myths about migrant workers, and encourage race hatred and bigotry. Our response as trade unionists is to get organised and be firmly rooted in our communities.

SERTUC is working with anti-racist/anti-fascist campaign group, HOPE not Hate, to put on a series of training days for trade unionists and community activists who are interested in organising their communities to oppose the politics of hatred and to work collectively to champion the benefits of multi-racial communities.

The training will be held on:

Saturday 23 January 11am – 3:30pm, UNISON’s offices

Church Lane House,Church Lane, Chelmsford CM1 1NH

Saturday 30 January 11am – 3.30pm, Central London, at the TUC

Congress House, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS

Saturday 6 February 11am – 3.30pm, Canterbury, at the Ann Robertson Centre

55 London Rd, Canterbury CT2 8HQ

There is no charge for attending. Lunch will be provided. Places are limited. You can register to attend at http://goo.gl/forms/TX3K9LYXE1

The training will be provided by HOPE not Hate. The programme will be ‘smart’ and dynamic. Outcomes for the day include:

· Identifying the nature of the challenges we face,

· Exploring the resources in our community that can be marshalled for hope,

· Making specific plans to build hope and isolate hate within our communities.

The aim is to inspire and enable our communities to stand up against prejudice, and organise for equality and opportunity for all.
