Have you experienced a sense of power imbalance that impacted on your perception of racism? Have you been harmed by racism, or are you a community activist, or a researcher? Do you know of any examples where anti-racist approaches have been used? Are you a practitioner working in the community? Then, this is the opportunity to have you work and views published in BHCC’s Anti-Racism Strategy which will inform our anti racist work.
What would make our communities and individuals feel more seen and valued?

It’s an opportunity for you to share your understanding of anti-racism, your lived experience of racism, and reflect on ways the council can respond.
