A message on the fight against racism from the Women's Centre Cornwall

A message on the fight against racism from the Women's Centre Cornwall


The tragic killings of George Floyd & Breonna Taylor - following so many others, has highlighted that the fight against racism is far from over. Inclusion & diversity have long been something we at The Women's Centre Cornwall have been committed to.

We believe that our diversity & difference makes us stronger.

We have spoken out and lobbied against racism but acknowledge that there is much more to be done in the fight to exist in a world free from oppression, bigotry and violence.
We wholeheartedly support the #BlackLivesMatter and #SayHerName movements and will actively seek to support the robust challenge against race-based discrimination.

The campaign, #SayHerName, was created to raise awareness about the number of women and girls who are victims of police brutality and racist violence. It’s powerful messaging provides an illustration of how racism and sexism play out on black women’s bodies and lives.

 

Action is necessary to make a difference and as an organisation, we know we can do more, and you have our commitment that we will persevere in our efforts and energy to do this.

 

“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.”― Angela Y. Davis
