Speaker: Dr Asif Afridi, Deputy Chief Executive of brap
Between 2016-2018, Civil Society Futures, the independent inquiry into the future of civil society, has examined how civil society in England can prepare for a more sustainable future. Racism has been high on the public agenda during the inquiry – from hate crime on our streets, the treatment of the Windrush generation, the experience of the survivors of the Grenfell tower tragedy, to Islamophobia in the media - there are increasing concerns that we are becoming a more racist society. But also the Inquiry heard little about race in the many conversations and workshops across civil society they ran, and so commissioned brap (an equality and human rights charity) to undertake a specific piece of research to surface issues and find solutions.
Light refreshments are available and all are welcome but please register your place on our eventbrite page.
