Our Purpose

We exist to challenge systemic racism for the benefit of all *Black communities and the wider UK society as a whole, to be the authoritative voice of Anti-racism in the F/HE, schools, public, voluntary and private sectors and to further the interests of people from ethnically diverse backgrounds who share a lived experience of the effects of racism. Our mission is to eradicate racism; our vision is an Anti-racist culture at the core of all aspects of UK life, education and work.

Our Beliefs

  • Every individual has the right to live a fulfilling life.
  • For as long as systemic racism exists, everyone’s potential will be held back.
