Standing Against Racism

In light of the recent events, we send a message of support and solidarity by fully committing to making a difference in the fight against racism and injustice. As part of this, we have put together some resources for broadening knowledge, deepening empathy and understanding, and ideas for anti-racist action. We all have our part to play.
If you have any suggestions that you would like to see added to this page please email lacparticipation@hounslow.gov.uk

Will you join us in making a statement of solidarity?

If you would like to get involved you can send us art, videos, writing or photos and we will put them all together to be shared. Please only send in what you are happy for us to share publicly (tell us if you want it to be anonymous). You can send to us by emailing lacparticipation@hounslow.gov.uk or sending by What’s App 07432 594042.
