On Saturday 2 June TUC in the Midlands and Stand Up To Racism are organising a major regional anti-racist conference.

This follows a very successful regional event last year.

We are living in the era of Donald Trump’s racism and the growth of support for the far right across Europe.

In Britain we see the Tory government disgusting treatment of the Windrush generation exposing the racism at the heart of their immigration policy. They scapegoat migrants, refugees and the Muslim community and play with the future of EU nationals in Brexit negotiations.

In these circumstances we want to build the biggest possible broad based anti-racist movement across Britain.

That means building the movements roots in every town and city.

The event will be held in Birmingham but will be encouraging involvement and support from organisations across the entirety of the Midlands.

Tickets are free but we encourage those who can to buy a ticket.
With:

  • Clare Short will open the conference

  • Chris Williamson MP Derby North

  • Wilf Sullivan TUC Eq Officer

  • Roger McKenzie Unison Assist Gen Sec

  • Howard Beckett Unite Assist Gen Sec

  • Lee Barron TUC Midlands Reg Sec

  • Salma Yaqoob

  • Phil Turner NUJ Rotherham

  • Alison Cope Mother of Joshua Ribera and youth violence & positive choice campaigner

  • Rose Brown Unison NEC

  • Dave Muritu UCU NEC Equality

  • Rhiannon Lockley UCU NEC


The emphasis of the conference is on building the anti-racist movement in our workplaces, colleges and communities.

Sessions on:

  • After Windrush, making the environment hostile for racists

  • Racism, antisemitism and Islamophobia – how do we stop the rise of the right?
