Confronting the Rise in Racism

‘Confronting the Rise in Racism’ will be a Yorkshire-wide, regional event and will be the second of its kind, following a successful event last year. The campaign against racism and Islamophobia is growing in strength and support but in an era of Trump and the recent revelations of the Windrush scandal, we must build a bigger and stronger anti-racist movement to stem the current tide. In recent elections across Europe we have seen growing support for the far-right; Islamophobic, anti-immigrant and anti-Semitic language is becoming normalised; race-hate crimes are increasing; and we are experiencing the biggest refugee crisis in history.

This event aims to bring together anti-racists to discuss and debate racism in society and how we can most effectively challenge it. More information can be found here.
