Championing & Promoting Equality
I am the founder of an equality campaign “UNHEARD VOICES”. This campaign has been set up to support a number of unheard voices in the black community.
Equality is a legal requirement as part of human rights yet; many still struggle in being heard and respected. Some feel that aspects of black african and caribbean cultures are not accept in wider society and that we are expected to dilute our culture ways to fit in, rather than being accepted for who we are. From hair styles at work and parenting, down to profession, work environment and fear of being perceived as ‘troublemakers’ for openly challenging circumstances and situations and wanting to be heard. So many are forced into silence!
