You are invited to the forthcoming online Race 2B BAME Conference. Organised by Multicultural Cumbria with our partner The University of Cumbria. Register on Eventbrite for free tickets.
The Black Lives Matter movement continues to build momentum with the injustices and inequality in all aspects due to the colour of skin.
In Cumbria, there is a significant need to action change. But this needs a united approach and empowering BAME people to raise the bar to lead that change. Is your organisation struggling to understand the issues?
Will you work with us to make that change? Find out how and why it's more important now than ever before!
