Confronting The Rise In Racism 2017
Last year’s conference: Confronting The Rise In Racism saw the birth of a new movement as over 1500 people joined Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott, Alf Dubs and leading figures from a broad range of campaigns and organisations to pledge to unite against the rise in racism.
Following the election of Donald Trump, threats from the far-right in Europe and a prolonged wave of racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism as well as the ongoing humanitarian crisis facing refugees, 2017’s conference will be a crucial opportunity to come together to discuss strenghtening our movement and taking on the challenges that confront us in 2017.
Speakers already confirmed include:
Kevin Courtney NUT Gen Sec, Dave Ward CWU Gen Sec, Kate Osamor MP Shadow DfID Secretary, Catherine West Labour MP Hornsey and Wood Green, Claude Moraes Labour MEP, Shahrar Ali Green Party Home Affairs spokesperson, Talha Ahmad Muslim Council of Britain Treasurer, Maurice Wren Chief Exec Refugee Council, Moazzem Begg former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Clare Mosesley Care4Calais founder.
