We’re now at a crucial moment in the struggle against racism, with an increasingly racist government introducing ever more vicious legislation against refugees & migrants, denying the existence of institutional racism and cracking down on protest, while public support for opposition to racism, footballers taking the knee and solidarity with Afghan refugees has grown massively.

This two day online conference brings together a broad range of campaigners, community groups, MPs, trade union leaders and international guests with interactive workshops where you can take part in the discussion on how we come together to defeat the government’s racist offensive.
