The past few months have seen a surge in discussions of systemic racism, and how racial justice and equality is to be incorporated into society at all levels.
This conversation will address institutional racism, homelessness and inter-generational poverty. Tackling the homeless crisis in the US will take an all-hands-on-deck approach and a commitment to dismantling the racist structures that have prevented so many people from a BME background from thriving. And in the UK, what does it mean for organisations to make a commitment to equity?
The session will bring together leaders on homelessness, poverty, and racism to highlight the roles that structural racism and poverty play in our system. They will discuss how we can build true equity in our homeless service systems ensuring that no part of society gets left behind in our move to end homelessness.
