Greater Manchester Race Equality Panel -Stephen Lawrence Memorial Day Event
The Greater Manchester Race Equality Panel invites you to this virtual event in honour of the 30th anniversary of Stephen Lawrence’s death. Join members of the Greater Manchester Race Equality Panel and our guest speakers as we celebrate the life of Stephen Lawrence by reflecting on positive changes that have been made in his memory and further promote the values of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Our discussions would centre on:
What progress there have been over the last 30 years
What do we still have to do and who do we need to influence to make the necessary changes?
How do we encourage people to reflect on the issues of racism and discrimination that still exist in society and to work towards creating a more equal and inclusive society?
Stephen Lawrence Day is an important reminder of the ongoing struggle for racial justice and equality, and serves as a call to action all.
