COMING SOON, 2024 Update
Click here to see Work in Progress
As part of RENS commitment to anti-racism, we are are working with local organisations to make anti-racism commitments visible, both online and in public spaces.
In 2020 Weston Town Council made a pledge followed by North Somerset Council in 2022 and we want to celebrate all those in Weston who have made similar commitments.
There are currently three main areas of focus:
DO YOU HAVE AN ANTI-RACISM POLICY?
We’re asking all organisations with an anti-racism policy to send a link to their policy and their logo so we can promote them on our website.
CAN YOU HELP US DEVELOP AN ANTI-RACISM PLEDGE?
We’re working with the local community to develop an anti-racism pledge to be signed by local businesses and organisations.
WILL YOU DISPLAY AN ANTI-RACISM STICKER?
Organisations, shops and businesses that sign the pledge will be offered anti-racism stickers to display in their windows, on their websites and on social media.
RACE EQUALITY WEEK (06-12 FEBRUARY 2023): IT’S EVERYONE’S BUSINESS
Race Equality Week is an annual UK-wide movement uniting thousands of organisations and individuals to address the barriers to race equality in the workplace.
During 2022, we supported Race Equality Week and the theme of #ActionNotWords, with a number of successful events held at The Other Place. The theme for 2023 is ‘IT’S EVERYONE’S BUSINESS’.
Can you help us prepare?
